But Is It Art, Sweetie?

For almost 40 years, New Yorkers have been in debate on the artistic merits of graffiti. From the police (not big fans) to the local artistic collectives (somewhat bigger fans), New Yorkers have taken delight and been dismayed by the work of some of the city’s biggest taggers. A new mobile exhibit from the Martinez Gallery brings together highlights of the city’s best “unwilling collaborations” between private property and these renegade artists. “Road Show” will be running through February 10, and literally is taking the graffiti to the streets with its moving exhibition space fashioned from U-Haul truck.
