Street Art Stories – Brooklyn Museum

brooklyn-street-art-in-converstaion-brooklyn-museum

On Thursday, April 24 at 7 p.m. the Brooklyn Museum presents
In Conversation: Brooklyn 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. They are joined in conversation by artists Swoon and Luna Park, and curator Keith Schweitzer.

A reception with a DJ, cash bar, and a guest-inclusive art-making project will follow. Presented in conjunction with the site-specific installation Swoon: Submerged Motherlands, on view from April 11 to August 24 in the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Gallery on the 5th Floor.

Tickets are $12; include Museum general admission and can be purchased at www.museumtix.com. Free for Museum Members; to reserve please email membership@brooklynmuseum.org.

I’m not sure Brooklyn Museum were quite ready for it…
