Banksy is back in NYC! As spring blooms, apparently so do our streets. But you have to know where- and how- to look. Of course I'll take you to new and famous street art, but we'll visit other sites to provide context. The depth goes beyond art, and into the history of the community and the birth of graffiti movement in the 1970s. Exploration begins at a local stronghold in the NY art world that originated in 1974. After quick introductions, we'll hit the road. On cold or rainy days we tend to mine indoor art treasures of the neighborhood. On nice days, we're in and out of little alleys and parks finding important (and sometimes just fun) art and writing in the out in the wild. Intriguing art is all over the place. A dizzying array of graffiti bolsters Shepard Fairey, Invader, Os Gemeos & JR pieces (we'll see art by at least one of these stars along the route). Walks typically end with a drink to help process the visual overload. I'll pass out a sheet of recommended spots nearby and a map of galleries in case you crave more. And sometimes an extra street art present if you're good ;] No art walk is ever the same.

Note: The exact location will be disclosed once the host has accepted your request.

Response Time:
Rich was born in Cleveland in 1980. He spent his formative years exploring, playing sports, goofing off with friends, and making art. He studied hard enough to attend Fordham University in the Bronx, where he reveled in New York City's art and history. He met his future wife, graduated, then moved back to Ohio for a few years. Here he had his first art studio, managed an apartment complex, and studied more art and history. He moved back to NY and took work in the Brooklyn Museum's education department. Freelance cultural tours and art education followed, as did a wedding in 2009. Since that time, his art has focused on found-object collage, and he's enjoyed scattered art shows. Rich now lives in Brooklyn with his wife and two young kids. He divides his time between family, doing his own artwork, and planning creative tours for his company, Gotham SideWalks.
