The program says it explores “the fundamental human need for public self-expression, highlighting artists with roots in graffiti and street art whose work has evolved into highly disciplined studio practices, alongside important cultural figures inspired by these art forms. For New York, the traveling art experience takes an expanded look at the role of music and the theme of artist activism.”
