Buckle-up for a plethora of Holiday Events, outdoor art installation and exhibitions this month ~ from Tree Lightings and Markets to the new car-free Fifth Avenue, there is no end to the fun to be had this Holiday Season. Here are a few suggestions for the month of December.
We were there from start (Saturday, August 24th, 2018 at Noon) to end of day on Sunday, August 25th. The 38th Edition of Graffiti Hall of Fame, El Barrio. Check it out.
Now in its 38th year, the theme for this year’s Event is a look-back to the pioneers of graffiti, who sat on subway platforms and benches and taught each other the craft. Stepping over open boxes of cans & large Blick bags to music by DJ Marlon B, the day began with artists giving a nod to friends and familiar faces, as they moved quickly to murals that will soon disappear.
