> DESCRIPTION

Signs and Symbols: From Street Art to High Art in the Second Floor South Gallery with internationally renowned and groundbreaking works by: Shepard Fairey, Banksy, Barry McGee, Heretic, Keith Haring, Cryptik, David P. Flores, Robbie Conal and others. Many of these artists pioneered the street art movement by using the urban realm as their canvas. Through creating guerilla works of art using spray paint, templates, wheat paste and the courage to transform the dialogue about where art may or may not be placed, sanctioned, and shown these artists have transformed the dialogue on the commercialization of art. Collectively the artists are master editors, using only the most relevant symbols to achieve the greatest visual impact, having the effect of transforming graphic design into high art.
