Our NYC correspondent, Brock Fetch, headed over to Pantheon: A History of Art From the Streets of NYC at the former Donnell Library across from MoMA in Manhattan. Over 33 graffiti writers and street artists united to reclaim the former Donnell Library as a "repository of visual information on the growing world-wide phenomenon of street art, presenting an art historical timeline that is a part of New York City's unique legacy."

As Brock told us, "I was contacted by Droid of the 907 graffiti crew to go in and shoot the piece that himself along with GEN2, OZE108 (http://oze108.tumblr.com/), UFO, SADUE, and Goya (tonybonesart.blogspot.com) had done for the show. It was built in Brooklyn at the Chicken Hut then reassembled and finished in the church space the day before the show opened. "

Artists in Pantheon include Abe Lincoln, Jr., John Ahearn and Rigorberto Torres, Adam VOID, Cassius Fouler, Cake, Darkclouds, Droid, El Celso, Ellis Gallagher, Faro, John Fekner and Don Leicht, Freedom, Gen2, Goya, Groser, Richard Hambleton, infinity, KET, LSD-Om, Matt Siren, NohJColey, OverUnder, Oze 108, Quel Beast, Royce Bannon, Sadue, Jordan Seiler, Stikman, Toofly, UFO, and Vudu. The show is co-curated by Daniel Feral & Joyce Manalo.

This exhibition is dedicated to Rammellzee R.I.P. 2010
