LA ArtWorks : Street Art, Part I : Michael DeFeo, Michael Dingler, Dan Witz, Gabriel Flores & Mia Kaplan of Ammo Gallery
February 18th, 2009
Dear Artists and Arts Enthusiasts,
On Tuesday, March 3, 2009, at 7:00 PM Louisiana ArtWorks will hold "Street Art, Part I: The Mark", the first of two panels dealing with this exciting topic. 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.
Join us as they 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? Discussion will take place at the Louisiana ArtWorks building, 725 Howard Avenue at Carondelet.
We look forward to seeing you there!
