City as Canvas - The Museum of The City of New York
The first time exhibition of works from the expansive street art collection of Martin Wong. Martin Wong, an East Village artist and collector of graffiti art, amassed a treasure trove of hundreds of works on paper and canvas—in aerosol, ink, and other mediums. The artists, including Keith Haring, Lee Quiñones, LADY PINK, and FUTURA 2000, were seminal figures in an artistic movement that spawned a worldwide phenomenon, altering music, fashion, and popular visual culture. The exhibition City as Canvas: Graffiti Art from the Martin Wong Collection begins with photographs of graffiti writing long erased from subways and buildings. Wong, who died of AIDS in 1999, donated his collection to the City Museum in 1994. --The Museum of The City of New York Source: http://www.mcny.org/content/city-canvas
