In light of both the recent MOCA-Blu faceoff and an episode in which New York street artists tagged a Kenny Scharf mural, this Thursday, UCLA’s Fowler Museum of Cultural History will host “How Does Street Art Humanize Cities?”, a panel exploring the concept of propriety in street art and its effect on the city in which it is placed.
The panel will coincide with the closing week of the museum’s exhibition of Larry Yust’s photographs of metropolitan street art. Moderated by LA Times arts writer Jori Finkel, the panel will feature Fowler curator Patrick Polk, who organized the Yust show; independent curator Aaron Rose, who is helping organize the upcoming MOCA street art survey; and two of Los Angeles’s best-known muralists: Man One and Retna.
