City as Canvas at the MCNY

City as Canvas at Museum of the City of New York

The City as Canvas exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York takes visitors back to a time when street art first emerged in a serious way in New York, amidst the disorder and desperation of the 1970s and 80s. It reminds us that although street artist is now a semi-reputable and occasionally even lucrative profession, it began with kids just trying to leave their mark on the world.
