Is graffiti art?

Professor Nina Mikhalevsky has raced out of the starting gate this semester with blogging guns a-blazing. She linked to a video titled Muto by a group of Argentinian graffiti artists as the kick-off to her Banned and Dangerous Art Freshman Seminar, and it is nothing less than amazing. It is part of a larger question about whether or not graffiti is art. And, after watching the following seven minute video I would challenge you to argue otherwise!
