Bombay Beach Art

At 223 feet below sea level, Bombay Beach is the lowest community in the U.S. The town is mostly dilapidated houses covered in graffiti.

[Todd, 06/06/2019]

Bombay Beach describes itself as "unfussy." It's a grid of 32 small square blocks in the desert, so a drive-by of all of its art seems very doable.
