book out: stencil graffiti capital

June 25, 2008 by

I spotted this book at the public library of all places – it’s enough inspirational material to make you daydream for hours. I disagree with it’s claim that Melbourne is the “heart” of stencil graffiti (can’t we share, y’all?) but it’s still a beautiful book.

the hirschhorn hits it

May 13, 2008 by

While it doesn’t count as street art, the Hirschhorn Museum gets written up in today’s NYT. DC’s Guggenheim-wannabe is the closest thing we’ve got to a modern or alternative art culture, and the Hirschhorn After Hours actually make me feel like DC has a rightful place at the art community’s table.
