Lazy Post – City as Canvas

095Whether you are for or against public graffiti you may still appreciate the City Of Canvas exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York.  Martin Wong who died of AIDS in 1999 was an artist and a graffiti pioneer in NYC, the city that defined the whole graffiti movement.  He amassed a huge graffiti collection during the 1970’s and 1980’s which he later donated to the city.  Wong’s works can be found in other museums all over the city including the Met.  After his death the Martin Wong foundation was created to continue his legacy

This is not the only reason to visit the Museum of the City of New York.  Rising Waters, a touchy subject with the Ziggy clan depicts the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.  Activists New York explores the entire history of activism in New York, among other exhibits on display.
