art in the streets @ MOCA

I had the pleasure of checking out the Art In The Streets exhibition at the MOCA in Los Angeles this weekend. I don’t think I had ever been this excited to visit a museum, nor have I had so many artists I recognized on the program. The street art movement didn’t start with (now relatively famous) Shepard Fairey or Banksy, but has been an evolution of subversive cultures and their written/drawn/painted/sprayed messages to the masses.

It was fun to learn more about this history and be inspired by men and women who challenged status quo.
