Albany-- Colorful words and artwork cover the exterior of many businesses in the Good Life City.

This Saturday, a community-wide clean-up will be held at several of the spray painted locations.

Judy Bowles, executive director of keep Albany-Dougherty beautiful, says the community can not tolerate such artistic expression in inappropriate places.

“Graffiti sends a bad message to everybody,” said Bowles. “On some of the graffiti that we have some of these young people are very very talented and they're just putting their talent at the wrong place. they need to be doing it in an appropriate place.”

To join in the clean-up efforts, meet behind Farmer's Furniture store on Dawson Road, Saturday at 9:00 AM.

The cleanup is sponsored by the Albany Police Department, the gang task force, and keep Albany-Dougherty beautiful.
