Song lyrics spray painted on Saginaw's vacant buildings

An underground arts project is happening in Saginaw
Saginaw, Michigan

A group of artists in Saginaw has been spray painting the lyrics to Simon & Garfunkel's bittersweet song "America" onto vacant buildings in Saginaw.

NPR has more on a story we posted earlier. The man spearheading the project, Eric Schantz, says he can relate to the song's lyrics:

"'Kathy' I said as we boarded a Greyhound in Pittsburgh Michigan seems like a dream to me now It took me four days to hitchhike from Saginaw I've gone to look for America"

NPR a slide show of buildings tagged with the lyrics.
