Regardless of ignorant opinion, “Art in the Streets” is without a doubt one of the single most important art events of our time. It’s made headlines all over the world. It’s sparked controversy in all avenues of the art world, above and underground. It’s produced a fair number of heroes and villains. And whether good or bad, it has managed to solidify the positions of graffiti and street art history.
As great things can’t last forever, the monolithic MoCA exhibition is coming to a close on August 8th. The 2012 chapter of AITS was slated for the Brooklyn Museum of Art but has since been canceled for “financial” reasons. That said, the next exhibition is unknown, so if you are on the West Coast from now until August 8th, make sure you make it to MoCA “Art in the Streets“. Don’t sleep.
