Posted December 4, 2015 at 10:28 am

When I asked Marcia Resnick and Victor Bockris how they met, Victor (recounting a story from 1975) said, “I hated her!” – he laughed.

One of the many wildcards of the new Essex Crossing development is a high-profile Warhol Museum outpost. Though initially included in the initial proposal pitched by the Delancey Street Associates consortium, there was still uncertainty as to whether it would happen. Until this past Saturday.

Last month, Jeremiah raised the question over whether sanctioned graffiti is still considered graffiti if it no longer defaces public property.  After all, that’s the whole point, right?  Whatever your stance, the argument will always boil down to age-old notions of selling out, whether it’s Warhol or Fairey.  It’s a fact of life.
