"Exactly how to tear down Matilija Dam has been a debate for years.
But some enterprising graffiti artist has a simple solution: Use a pair of 28-foot-tall scissors.
Sometime around Sept. 7, a giant pair of scissors was painted on the face of the 200-foot dam along with 8-foot-tall dotted lines guiding where the massive shears should go.
The dotted line runs from the top of the defunct concrete dam down to the waterline. It likely took at least two people rappelling the face of the dam — one to hold a stencil, another to spray the black paint that forms the images. #matilijadam #graffiti #streetart #ojai #california #scissors #damscissors w/ @jrogan18 and @rorykramer
