Street Art // Tuesday, April 12, 2011
We have spent the past five days at MOCA watching the final touches being put on the seminal Art In the Streets exhibit, and part of our time we have been watching Levi's put together their newest Levi’s® Workshops, the Film Workshop. For the entirety of the the Streets exhibit, Levi's will allow museum goers and the general public a chance to make their own films, from Super 8 to 3D, home movies to avant garde, amateur to professional. Watch the trailer after the jump . . .

We have been following the progress of LEE's mural at MOCA's Art In the Streets all weekend, and yesterday evening finally took a few shots of the beautiful progress that he has been in making. LEE, our April 2011 subscriber cover artist and featured in the magazine, has been painting the large facade outside of the Geffen with PUSH and RISK, at least when we took these pictures.

We are sitting about 3 steps from the entrance of the Art In the Streets store at Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, and we know there is a special edition MTN Colors can done with Chaz Bojorquez as a special "Art In the Streets" can. If you are going with a special can for the first US museum retrospective of street art and graffiti, you should start with one of the originals. More after the jump . . .

The other day, watching an installation come to life at MOCA's Art In the Streets, I was struggling to get my indoor photo settings right. And you know what? Martha Cooper stopped and taught me how to shoot proper indoor art conditions. That has to be a highlight. Right now at Carmichael Gallery in LA, Martha Cooper: Remix just opened, featuring Cooper's classic photos with over 50 artists creating their own unique interpretations of her iconic, historically significant imagery.

The buzz surrounding MOCA's Art In the Streets exhibit can't be any louder, as the response we have received over our April 2011 "Art In the Streets" issue done in conjunction with the show's curators has been off the charts. Maybe it was the Margaret Kilgallen cover? Whatever it is, its getting louder and louder, and just remember if you can't go, there is going to be the show's catalogue book. More after the jump . . .

We say "if only" because if Todd "REAS" James and Steve "ESPO" Powers were going to take their slot at MOCA's "Art In the Streets" and do a musical version of the seminal cult graffiti film, "Style Wars," like they were Marina Abramovic performing for museum goers everyday, all day, that would be something to see.

We go back to 1983, an era of hip-hop, graffiti, and street culture that our April 2011 Art In the Streets Issue covers, and give you the masterpiece work of graffiti artist, musician and futurist, Rammellzee, and hip-hop artist K-Rob, "Beat Bop." And to round it out, Jean-Michel Basquiat did the single's cover artwork. Listen after the jump . . .
