BANKSY'S

STAIN

GLASS

WINDOW

As the very first major U.S. museum exhibition of graffiti and street art, MOCA presented the media preview of Art in the Streets, an epic visual feast you must experience for yourself! Tracing the development of graffiti and street art from the '70s to where it is today, MOCA pulled out all the stops - educating us on the rich history, entertaining us with their "shows within a show" (live skateboarding, a re-creation of an urban street, etc) and inspiring us to find the artist within ourselves.

Of course, the highlight of it all is seeing the art we've featured over and over again on My Modern Met, up close and personal. Though the MOCA is filled will incredible art and photos around every corner, we couldn't help but spend a large portion of our time hanging out around original works by our favorites - Banksy and Brazilian duo Os Gemeos.
