Merge Conceptual Design's paint scheme functions as a creative graffiti abatement strategy. If the buildings are tagged, the park facilities staff has been instructed to paint over the tag using a circle stencil and colored paint. Each new circle adds to the artwork.The park is empowered to address vandalism with an artistic, proactive approach.
