ArtSessions Panel Discussion: Street Art, Part I: The Mark
Street artists' work can be found on buildings, railway cars, on streets, in tunnels, and other incidental places. At what point do we define something as "art", beyond the popular definition? Artists Michael De Feo, Michael Dingler, Dan Witz, and Gabriel Flores will engage in a discussion moderated by Mia Kaplan, Co-owner of Ammo Gallery. Lecture will examine how Street Artists have branded themselves in the contemporary market. Who are their heroes, and how did the street became their preferred venue for showing work?
