TRTL talk

The hullabaloo over Detroit’s turtle graffiti (simplistic outlines of a terrapin accompanied by the signature TRTL or TURTL popping up all over town) has inspired Aaron Timlin, director of the Detroit Artists Market, to hold a public debate on the matter. Timlin got a heated response after announcing a bounty — he’s raised about $1,000 so far — for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the TRTL perp or perps. “Art or Vandalism, a Symposium on Graffiti,” will include panelists on all sides of the graffiti issue, and will take place at DAM April 3 at 7 p.m. Call 313-832-8540 for more details.
