Wow, I definitely need to stop by this show! All of the originators of the street art movement!
Art in the Streets is the first major U.S. museum survey of graffiti and street art. Curated by MOCA Director Jeffrey Deitch and Associate Curators Roger Gastman and Aaron Rose, the exhibition will trace the development of graffiti and street art from the 1970s to the global movement it has become today, concentrating on key cities such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, and Sao Paulo, where a unique visual language or attitude has evolved.
I’ve already made plans to check it out before it’s gone. I may take my niece so she can see and enjoy graffiti the way I did as a kid.
