DESCRIPTION

BEYOND GRAFFITI 2 is the final show at A+D Museum's Wilshire Boulevard location before its move to the Downtown Arts District this summer. The exhibition bids a fond farewell to a beloved cultural landmark as the building will be demolished to make room for the new purple line metro station.

The second run of Beyond Graffiti is an emotional response to the changing of our neighborhoods and the loss of Los Angeles history. In light of our city's constant movement toward modernization, graffiti provides a dynamic medium to address this cultural loss. Graffiti is more than just adding color or words to a wall - it is an expressive gesture vis a vis architecture, design, and the landscape of the city in which we live. We are defining the rich history of the urban art scene that pushes past the preconception of the spray can.

We invite you to celebrate with us the last days of this building with music, art, and conversation.
