Street Art is Freedom
Who: Art in the Street
What: MOCA at the Geffen
Rating: Color + Shape + Texture = Beauty. That's my formula
Shame on me for waiting too the last minute to catch MOCA's most successful exhibit Art In The Streets. I did an intro on the exhibit a while back and let my schedule get the better of me. But luckily, and just in the nick of time, I mozied my way little Tokyo.
Outside the line was ridiculous, inside pure joy! I have so many great pics i won't delay with my on going banter. Enjoy.
Totally Obsessed, xoxo Love

When I was a kid getting a fresh box of Crayola's was like Christmas. Seeing this display of spray paint colors and brands took me right back to that happy memory. That crisp smell as soon as you opened the box, just made my imagination run wild. Oh the possibility of color!
The shadowbox display of the inside of a NY subway car (above) and the wallpaper display of exterior graffiti painted subway cars (below) put me in a New York state of mind.
