Add to Calendar 04-02-2014 24-08-2014 15 City as Canvas City as Canvas provides a visual account of graffiti and street art in New York City during the 1970s and 80s, showcasing works from the pioneering collection of Martin Wong (1946-1999). Wong, a noted East Village artist in the 1980s and friend to many graffiti writers, amassed a collection of hundreds of works on paper and canvas, which he donated to the City Museum in 1994. This exhibition, which showcases these works for the first time, traces the origins of this urban self-expression and the era of "outlaw" street art, which became a worldwide cultural phenomenon. It features examples of paintings and sketch book work by artists including Keith Haring, Lee Quinones, Lady Pink, Futura 2000, among many others. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=149401 Museum of the City of New York true DD/MM/YYYY
