Class #5 – 7/13 – The Evolution to Street Art
On Friday 7/13 we began to transition from Graffiti into the medium known as Street Art. We began discussing what falls “in between” the two terms and what that looks like. What are the differences? What is the history of street art and who are the foundation artists that paved the way?
We discussed artists like KATSU – and the great piece on his work that appears in RJ Rushmore’s book Viral Art.
VIRAL ART is must read and we will begin investigating the book in Monday’s class.
**Reminder – Tuesday 7/17 we will meet at 11:00 am at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.
