Graffiti // Wednesday, June 13, 2012
In Haze's words about this billboard, “I was recently asked to create a memorial piece to honor MCA as part of the billboard project currently going on in LA.  The piece just went up yesterday at Santa Monica and Vine, and is the third in a trilogy behind Kaves and Shepard.  I was grateful to be given such a public forum to properly celebrate the life of my friend and collaborator Adam Yauch, and hope that these memorials will reverberate among the community that continues to mourn his passing.”
