See More of This Rad Street Art Go Up at Juicy Festival This Weekend

Bushwick’s forthcoming beer garden, The Well, still isn’t ready for nightly revelry (sometime in July, rumor has it) but thanks to the Juicy Art Festival, you can go hang out there and drink tonight and all day tomorrow. If you enjoyed all the live painting at Bushwick Open Studios last weekend, you’ll definitely want to head to The Well’s back courtyard to see the likes of Magda Love, Iena Cruz, Son and Werc fill up the enormous walls.

There Were Rockers and Stilt Walkers at the Bushwick Collective Block Party

The third annual Bushwick Collective Block Party went down yesterday on Troutman Street and, like most everything else in the city these days, it was bigger than ever before.

But don’t worry: it was tastefully sequestered in the “XXX Adults Only XXX” section.

In East Williamsburg, a Fresh Take On Martha Cooper’s ’70s LES Photos

The challenge is always the same: how to translate the urgency, the lawlessness, the serendipity of discovery inherent in street art and graffiti into the gallery setting. For street artist/graffiti writer Elle, the answer lay in a collaboration with legendary street photographer Martha “Marty” Cooper, and the result is the excellent exhibition at East Williamsburg’s Mecka gallery, “Unextinguished.”

Some Artists Built a Bodega Inside of a Bushwick Gallery

Last night Bushwick’s Exit Room gallery hoisted the flag for “Newmerica: The Birth of a Nation,” a tightly-focused group show (and burgeoning art collective?) of new works from Icy and Sot, NDA, Sonni, Matta Ruda, and LNY. Some of the work was so new, in fact, the LNY was still finishing his final piece even after the crowds started to arrive.
