Graffiti art on display in Central Fresno

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Several walls in central Fresno are now covered in fresh graffiti, but it was all put there legally.

Artists from across California and Nevada painted dozens of murals at Calwa Park Saturday for the third annual Bizare Art Fest.

It's the only location in the Fresno area that gives a legal platform for displaying graffiti art. The event is named after the founder of a well-known graffiti crew, "Lord Bizare."

Organizers say, while graffiti has traditionally had a negative reputation, it continues to gain credibility within artistic communities around the world.
