Graffiti: A History in Photographs with Jim Prigoff
October 19, 2012; 6:00 p.m.
While the modern era of graffiti started in 1969 in Philadelphia and New York, writing on walls is as old as human existence. Join photographer Jim Prigoff, who has been documenting murals, graffiti, and street art for the past forty years, to learn about graffiti artists from the Bay Area and beyond—including Dream (RIP), Raevyn, NME, Katch One, Brett Cook, Chor Boogie, and SEEN—as well as the early work of Barry McGee.
