WALLPLAY swapped out its facade artwork over the weekend to accommodate the newest installation at 118 Orchard Street. Indeed, street crew Mint & Serf was deposed in favor of some Wu Tang lovin’. The exhibit debuted Saturday night, and is apparently part of “WU HA,” a year-long initiative that celebrates the 20th anniversary of the seminal hip-hop collective. Here at the corner of Delancey is a multimedia group show featuring pieces from a host of artists from “every medium.”

On the facade of the two-story building are two Wu Tang Clan murals. Enjoy them while you can…

WALLPLAY is operated by The City Firm, and is basically a “plug and play exhibition platform” that marries elements of art and advertising. The last big event here was for the release of The Clash box set back in September.

What’s your favorite Wu Tang song?
