EXHIBIT | Write Of Passage

I've always been a fan of street art—I'm always the straggler in the group who has to stop to take photos of any cool artwork I stumble upon throughout the city. Not only are they cool to look at, but I love how there's much more that goes into it. Although I didn't get to visit 5 Pointz during my last visit to NYC and I missed out on that whole secret Banksy sale in Central Park, I did get to check out a new graffiti exhibit called Write Of Passage.

Curated by Mass Appeal and housed in the Red Bull Studios (218 W. 18th Street, between 7th and 8th Aves.), the space is turned into a hub of history and culture, with the help of a long list of exhibitors. The exhibit kicked off to the public on Saturday, October 19th and it's open every Saturday from 1pm-5pm until November 23rd.

The exhibit takes you through to the roots of this often misunderstood art form. Full of history, the Redbull Studios is transformed into a place that aims to foster a dialogue surrounding graffiti—there are also workshops and speakers.

Take a look:

I pretty much fell in love with the space. Redbull, you are doing it right. Seriously, so chill. I hung out a bit in their lounge and took a look through the Mass Appeal magazine and found so many awesome articles and photos—incredibly well done. I definitely read through it more on my plane ride home!

Can I just work here already?
