mo’ snaps from the weekend

I spent some time cycling over the weekend. I wanted to peep the new murals that went up in BK in connection with the Wooster Collective 10 Exhibit. They were all good. This Shepard Fairey piece was my favorite, though. And unfortunately, I snapped my favorite shot of it (with Trixie below) with my phone, and not a real camera. If you want to check out the work in person, Wooster posted a guide to the locations of all of the murals, here. Also, check out this.

wooster collective 10 year anniversary group exhibit

One of my favorite street art blogs, Wooster Collective, celebrated its 10th year this week with a group exhibit at Jonathan Levine Gallery. The exhibit is featuring work from some of my favorite contemporary artists, some of which were on hand at the event held this week at Levine’s Pop up gallery on 22nd Street in Chelsea (525 west 22nd St.). It opens to the public tonight, and runs through August 24th. It is definitely worth checking out.

Here are a few more looks.
