Titled “Whole in the Wall,” this art show at the Helenbeck gallery recently attracted an eclectic crowd. This is likely because it was billed as “The largest American & European Street Art Exhibition in New York.”

It drew a diversity of artists, collectors, gallery personnel and other art-loving spectators. I would have loved to have been there.

Implications - At one time graffiti was considered unappealing and slanderous. Today's culture appreciates the unique spray painted art and gives it the credit it deserves. By putting hosting shows for graffiti it is showing that people are enjoying new and unconventional types of art. This gives an opportunity for artists to try pushing the boundaries in their artworks to receive attention.
