Street Cred - Opening Night - Part 1

Pasadena Museum of California Art - Street Cred - Retna
On Saturday, May 14, 2011 we attended the opening night of Street Cred - Graffiti Art From Concrete To Canvas. The exhibit was held at the Pasadena Museum of California Art.

The hugely successful exhibit was over a year in the making. It was curated by Steve Grody, author of Graffiti LA and PMCA Exhibition Manager Shirlae Cheng-Lifshin. The show featured over 30 Los Angeles based graffiti artists doing museum quality work. Every piece in the exhibit featured a photograph by Steve Grody showing the artist's street work alongside with the work for the show. The show runs until September 4, 2011.

We had the fortune to be able to interview Steve Grody about the exhibit. We will post the interview next week. Stay tuned for part 2 of the pictures.

I had wanted to have credits on the "explanation wall" that the throw-ups were by Crae and Plek, and that the production was by Krush and Tyke Witnes. So there it is!
