Boogie Staff Picks: The Year at the Graffiti Wall 
2010 was definitely the year that the Tony Goldman-owned graffiti wall truly became mainstream. The spot, made famous by Keith Haring in the eighties, has been a topic of conversation amongst the blogosphere for years, but local media organizations have finally jumped aboard. This year saw the construction of a temporary, paneled box to protect the artwork of Os Gemeos, which was painted in July 2009 and remains intact. Shepard Fairey garnered plenty of hatred for his replacement, while a wall of red tags by Barry McGee proved that sometimes minimalism is choice. Now Kenny Scharf has our attention with cartoon faces.
Herewith, is a brief photo montage of the year at the graffiti wall.
