In Conversation: Brooklyn Street Art

Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 7 p.m.
Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Decode the messages and stories hidden within street art. Brooklyn Street Art founders Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo lead a dynamic, multimedia conversation that explores the evolution of street art stories as told by the earliest graffiti writers to today's D.I.Y. artists. They'll reveal secret backgrounds, show what stylistic themes are recurring today, and hint at the future of street art in New York.
