Another highlight from "Art In the Streets" were the facing exhibition spaces of CR Stecyk III and Shepard Fairey. Stecyk covered the entirety of his walls with his screenprint and handpainted posters, all the same sized and dizzingly arranged. Shepard opted for a clean set-up, with iconic pieces that span his entire career. And Ed Templeton's work looned in the background. More after the jump . . .
