Appalachian State University offers the tunnels on Rivers Street to anyone that wishes to spray paint or draw in a public place. The painting and drawing must be kept inside the tunnels and is not allowed on the walls outside the tunnels, handrails, etc.  

North Carolina General Statutes refers to this type of graffiti as an act of criminal activity.
