Graffiti Warriors: Bama and Pistol, Pioneers of Subway Art
This is free and open to the public. In the early 1970s, the felt-tipped, penned initials on New York City's subway morphed into multicolored lettering and illustrations sprayed on the trains and tunnels with aerosol paint cans. Inner-city kids from the Bronx, Manhattan, and Brooklyn viewed the trains as a rolling canvas showcasing their art for all New Yorkers, rich and poor alike. In so doing, they pioneered an indigenous urban American art form--graffiti, now recognized worldwide as the visual component of hip-hop culture. This exhibition celebrates the past and present art of two graffiti artists--Richard Admiral, Jr. and his buddy Lonnie Heller, aka Bama and Pistol--who helped pioneer subway graffiti before the art form was chronicled by acclaimed photographers Henry Chalfant and Martha Cooper in the late '70s.
