I'm all in favor of her being allowed to revisit these destinations with a scrub brush prior to her imprisonment.

What a naive idiot.

Not art, but garbage.

Took this from my kayak on Banks Lake.  It is in Steamboat Rock SP.
Not only is it vandalism, it is incorrect.  That is not an island.  It is a peninsula.

Wish folks who do such stuff would have to come back and clean it off.

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities

I myself would use stronger language. Hope she is caught.

I can't decide what is stupider. Defacing national park structures, or posting about it on the internet. It's like deciding between syphilis and herpes.

airline travel + acrylic paint + social media + pathetic human ego

Nevermind prosecution, justice would have been one of those cliffs simply dropping a rock on her.

White House petition asking to press charges against Ms. Nocket

my comment on the "Modern Hiker" site:

Zank, the petition to the White House is probably a good idea to bring attention to this, but I wonder about its efficacy, and whether it will get the number of signatures required for anyone to pay attention to it.
I would suggest sending an email to the National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis at jon_jarvis@nps.gov and expressing your outrage and disappointment his direction.

It would appear this will not be Ms. Nocket’s first experience dealing with law enforcement:

After having read the articles and comments that have so far been posted here and on other sites, the adjectives which I believe most aptly apply here are:
narcissist
ignorant
entitled

I am quite saddened by this. My guess is Ms. Nocket more than likely had some academic training, but it would appear the tuition might have been better spent on liquor or lottery tickets.

I wonder how she would react if I went to her house and did a few paintings of my own.

Yeah, but that looks like nothing more than a pot bust.

Hopefully she will refrain from future art projects on public land and doesn't choose to up the ante

If she's gonna paint on things, I'd prefer it to be on things like phone booths and mail boxes.

Mr. Jonathan Jarvis, Director
National Park Service
Washington, D.C.

re: Casey L. Nocket graffiti/vandalism at National Parks

Sir:

After reading several online articles and readers' comments regarding Casey L. Nocket's graffiti and vandalism at several National Parks, I would like to express my comments and suggestions.

This matter was brought to my attention in an online article posted HERE: http://www.modernhiker.com/2014/10/21/instagram-artist-defaces-national-parks/

There has already been a petition posted at whitehouse.gov HERE: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/press-charges-casey-nocket-finesmax-community-servicejail-timeetc-httpgooglhy4yqj-defacing-np-nm/1y8xJBGm

It would appear this is not Ms. Nocket's first transgression. Story HERE: http://www.dailyfreeman.com/general-news/20120110/law-disorder-jan-10-2012

I believe the three adjectives which most aptly apply in this case are: narcissist, ignorant, and entitlement.

I consider myself to have a fairly open mind when it comes to "art", and have a bit of background in the art world myself. While the ancient native American petroglyphs and pictographs were indeed a form of "graffiti" originally, the addition of what are at best mediocre high-school-level cartoons can in no way be considered something which enhances the intrinsic beauty and value of our National Parks.

I urge that Ms. Nocket be prosecuted to the fullest extent the law allows. I have no doubt others will cry out for retribution in the form of incarceration or community service at the least, or removal of Ms. Nocket's fingers at worst.

Having worked with acrylics myself a few times, I know it can be removed with acetone or a pressure washer, but I believe in this particular instance it would be more appropriate and more environmentally friendly to employ pure water and a stiff boar-bristle brush. A video posted online of Ms. Nocket removing her work might well prove to be an effective deterrent and send a clear message to other cretins who might be entertaining thoughts of engaging in similar activities.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
