Tues 10th June: NYC - "CITY AS CANVAS" at Museum of the City of New York

Wherever I go on travels, I like to hunt out an original Keith Haring, and as this trip took me to where it all began - it was to be a sure thing!!   Now on at Museum of the City of New York, is the 1st exhibition of street art collected by Martin Wong, who was an East Village artist that amassed a treasure trove of hundreds of works on paper and canvas in aerosol and ink. The names exhibited including Keith Haring are Lee QuiƱones, LADY PINK, and FUTURA 2000 - all seminal figures in a movement that spawned a worldwide phenomenon, altering music, fashion, and popular visual culture. The exhibition City as Canvas: Graffiti Art from the Martin Wong Collection includes over 150 pieces along with photographs of the time........... here are just a few that I snapped .............. top six being Keith
