Today is the official public unveiling of the Little Italy street art destination along Mulberry Street. “The Art of Comedy,” an initiative sponsored by the New York Comedy Festival and Vandalog
, brought the comical musings of well known graffiti artists
to the neighborhood – Ron English, Hanksy
, and Gilf
. An “art crawl” had originally been planned for November 3, but was pushed to noon today because of Hurricane Sandy
. Meet outside Caffe Roma
at 385 Broome.
The ultimate goal of this partnership, according to the Little Italy Merchant Association, is for the corridor between Canal and Broome to become an outdoor gallery of sorts. This is essentially the inaugural exhibition.
