Details

Join us for a lunchtime tour and writing prompt at a new ArtsWestchester exhibit featuring street art!

Anchored by large-scale mural commissions by some of the best-known American urban artists, “From the Streets” chronicles the meteoric rise of the urban artist from vandal and outlaw to cultural trendsetter. Mixed-media installations, murals, photographs and works on canvas will highlight the mastery and diverse practices of today’s urban artists. The exhibit also highlights legendary artists who rose to prominence in the 1980’s, a pivotal moment in graffiti’s burgeoning culture.

River River Writers Circle will receive a private tour of the exhibit! Please arrive on time. After our tour and writing time at ArtsWestchester, we will pick a nearby restaurant for lunch.
