Walking Tour: Street Art of the Lower East Side TW08
From marker to roller, from sticker to spray can, there is a diverse and wildly inventive sensibility at work here on these Lower East Side streets. This walking tour explores a LES section bounded by the Bowery, E. Houston, Essex and Delancey, that features a wide range of the best street artwork found in Manhattan. On doorways, across walls and rooftops, down alleys and outdoor gallery fences, imaginative work by local and international street artists flourishes along the route of this exploration. Dense with buildings and sites of historical and cultural interest, street artists embellish surfaces in this neighborhood constantly, continually renewing and expanding their artwork for public display. Along our route we will also be visiting the First Street Green, the Houston Bowery Wall, the 100 Gates Project, the Centre-Fuge Public Art Project, and Freeman Alley in our exciting investigation of this art form.
