“I look at Watts as art. It’s art because of the Watts Towers, because of the graffiti artists that make beautiful drawings. The Watts Towers Art Center hosts lectures, jazz festivals and art classes. People make music videos in this neighborhood and get tattoos of the Towers. Look around and you see art everywhere.”
