While the debate whether graffiti, from the Italian word "graffiato" meaning scratched, is considered an art or vandalism rages on today, society has begun accepting the former. Work from famous graffiti artists such as Banksy, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and more have had entire exhibitions dedicated to them by various museums. The Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of Modern Art to name a few. Graffiti, while proponents are technically considered vandalism, is now widely accepted as art.
