Graffiti took hold in New York in the early 1970s, starting in Washington Heights and the Bronx before spreading throughout the city. Artist Martin Wong moved to New York in 1978, and he saw the seeds of a major art movement popping up on the streets around him. In the 1970s and 1980s, Wong collected about 300 pieces from graffiti artists around New York, and now about half of the collection is on display at the City Museum in an exhibition called City as Canvas: Graffiti Art from the Martin Wong Collection.

“The arts open your heart and mind to possibilities that are limitless. They are pathways that touch upon our brains and emotions and bring sustenance to imagination. Human beings’ greatest form of communication, they walk in tandem with science and play, and best describe what it is to be human.”

Guests of Rooster know Thelma as our dear friend and our patron of the arts, and we’re so excited for her conversation with MoMA director Glenn D. Lowry on February 7th.

Topics discussed will include their take on how our galleries and institutions capture artistic communities and history, held in conjunction with MoMA PS1′s exhibition Now Dig This! Art and Black Los Angeles 1960–1980, which will be on display through March 11.

If you haven’t gotten a chance to see the exhibit yet, it’s worth checking out to see this examination of a pioneering group of African-American artists whose individual as well as collaborative talent with other artists helped shape a large part of Southern California’s art scene today. As well as viewing at least 140 works by over 30 artists, this exhibit also examines the increasing political, social and economic power of African Americans throughout the U.S.

Covering two floors, the exhibition features various captivating works, such as the vibrant and thought-provoking photographs of Brooklyn-based Narcissister, the gold-leaf embossed still-lifes of the West Coast artist Noah Davis, and the disconcertingly organic sculptures of New York’s Kevin Beasley.
