Art or vandalism?

The front of these vacant and dilapidated retail buildings on East Grace Street have for some time now been used as an impromptu art gallery. About 10 or pieces adorn the boarded up windows of the burned out shops at 3rd and Grace Street, sometimes jokingly referred to as Little Baghdad. The absentee landlord has been in and out of court over code violations several times.

Do you think this type of art as a positive benefit and  a good use of an abandoned space? Or do you consider it vandalism that should be punished? Or asked another way, in this case who damages the community’s image more, the landlord or the artist?
