MOCA Art In The Streets Opening Photos

MOCA Opening Los Angeles April 15, 2011

Last night the opening of the Art in the Streets exhibition at the Los Angeles MOCA saw a massive crowd gather downtown for what has to be one of the biggest and best displays of graffiti, skate, punk and hip hop culture in recent history. It was a start-studded turnout with the like of Futura, Fab 5 Freddy, Haze, Twist, Banksy, and Mister Cartoon to name just a few, all attending with flying colors. There was also a heavy skate presence with a who’s who of Los Angeles skate notables soaking in the atmosphere. And if that wasn’t enough, you might have been lucky to catch a glimpse of Gwen Stefani, Justin Timberlake, and Lance Armstrong rubbing elbows with the crowd of hundreds. The show opens officially on April 17 at the Geffen Contemporary and is definitely worth a look, it’s both visually exciting and historically informative.
