New mural brings outsider art indoors at Red Rock

Red Rock Coffee got tagged ... on purpose. Artists from Art War created a graffiti mural on the second floor of the popular downtown coffee house. Brendan McCarthy, one of the artists, says the mural portrays "an urban element in a non-urban setting, to blur the line between vandalism and fine art." Photo by Michelle Le.
