A History of American Graffiti: MOCA DC, 2001

A public art project by the D.C. Museum of Contemporary Art [MOCA], curated by Clark – aka “The Godfather of Underground Art” – Fox in Fall 2001. Located in Dupont Circle, Washington, DC. :

This street art show was part of a joint venture between the MOCA – co-founded by yours truly – and Starwood Urban Investments.

In addition to myself, other painters included “Zephyr,” a legendary New York graffiti artist; Los Angeles-based Shepard Fairey, who contributed his signature drawing “Andre the Giant,” which satirizes American corporate advertising; Texas-born photographer Ron English, who has hand-painted over 500 billboards across the country; and Roger Gastman. Each artist was given a 9-foot-by-9-foot area to work on, so each panel had a style of its own.
