So-Called Artist Defaces National Parks Post Photos To Instagram


In a story that's outraged the internet, Instagram user "creepythings" (real name Casey Nocket) has posted a bunch of images of herself defacing at least 10 of our National Parks. The story was broken by two hiking enthusiast magazines and made it all the way to the National Parks Service. Their response:

"The National Park Service is investigating reports of vandalism in at least 10 national parks in Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, and Utah.

While we can’t discuss details of a case under investigation, we take the issue of vandalism seriously. National parks exist to preserve and protect our nation’s natural, cultural and historic heritage for both current and future generations. Vandalism is a violation of the law and it also damages and sometimes destroys often irreplaceable treasures that belong to all Americans.

There are forums for artistic expression in national parks because national parks inspire artistic creativity. These images are outside that forum and outside the law."
