GRAFFITI, STREET ART AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT
Is graffiti vandalism? Is it art? How does it affect city development and urban planning? Our tour will take you to hidden spots in Manhattan where graffiti is still alive and kicking. We will discuss the environment that enables street art to exist, how it affects changes in the city, go over techniques and talk about the motivation and inspiration to get up in the middle of the night, put spray paint in a backpack and go out to the streets to make art on the city’s walls.
