Photo of the day: LEARNING TO WRITE – August 21, 2011 a class of grade school children was brought to the 5 Pointz street art museum and learned about hip hop culture, the history of graffiti art in NYC and then they were shown how to stylize their names. Once they had perfected their names they were allowed to write them on the lids of the dumpsters in the loading dock area, taking great care to leave their new artistic names with pride.
Come see my photos exhibited in the PHO-TO-GRAFFS exhibit at the Gold Coast Arts Center, March 16 opening reception.

Photo of the day: THE DETERMINED PHOTOGRAPHER – I am going to post vintage photos of the 5Pointz graffiti museum this week, in honor of my upcoming participation in the ‘PHO-TO-GRAFFS’ gallery exhibit opening this Sunday, March 16, 3pm at Gold Coast Arts Center in Great Neck, Long Island.
This photo was taken Sunday afternoon, October 13, 2013, thirty-six days before the unexpected destruction of all the artwork. Little did this aspiring and determined little photographer know, he was capturing a piece if history.
