There's an incredible amount of street art in New York City whether Banksy (English) or Kobra (Brazilian) have "residencies" here or not. See and learn and what inspires today's fascinating mix of paste-ups, stencils, memorials, tags and throws. Get the context behind Banksy's 2013 street art blitz right here in the streets where hip hop and graffiti began. Besides the latest street art, we'll explore art in and about the streets, and learn how museums like the New Museum and ICP have taken note. We'll stop into a gallery or 2 on the way, comparing and contrasting street art and graffiti with art on gallery walls. Around us, historic tenements mix with bold architectural innovation in this eclectic and ever-evolving neighborhood. No tour is ever the same. Artists, curators, or gallery owners often jump into the conversation. In addition to the aforementioned street artists and samplings of relevant contemporary art, we typically find Shepard Fairey, Invader, LEE, Kenny Scharf, JR, Nick Walker, Hanksy, and Os Gemeos pieces along the route. We end amongst excellent food and drink options and near public transport. Evening timeslots often conclude at a bar with Happy Hour prices! Please arrive early... it's difficult to catch us once we leave the start point. There's a small exhibition (and great bathroom!) at City Lore to see anyways.
