Question 1: Is graffiti art or vandalism?
Centers said he truly believes graffiti is an art because not everyone can do graffiti, like himself.
Question 2: Have you seen graffiti on campus? If so where?
The only graffiti Centers has seen on campus is the Bill Cosby cartoon art.
Question 3: How do you think graffiti on campus should be handled?
"I feel it should be handled. They should give people that want to do graffiti a place they can and cannot do it," Centers said. "I don't think you should just completely outlaw graffiti, because like I said it's art and we have art classes."
Question 4: How would you handle graffiti if you had a close friend participate in it? Would you support him/her?
"Absolutely, I would support it. It's an art, I can't do it," said Centers. "If it's something they can create that is productive and interesting and other people want to see it, I don't see why you would try and keep it away from them."
