Alumni Day: The Classics Tour of the Lower East Side & the Bowery
Led by Gallatin alumnus and Graff Tours owner Gabe Shoenberg (GAL '11), this tour teaches appreciation for street art and takes a critical look at the art of graffiti (yes, the art). This tour uses today’s biggest artists to give you a broad sense of both the graffiti and street art world. See street artists like Banksy, Shepard Fairey (creator of Obama’s Hope poster), ROA, Nick Walker, JR, and graffiti writers like Toro, Katsu, and Giant One. This tour is in and around the Bowery area of Manhattan.
Meet at the Northwest Corner of Bleecker Street and The Bowery in front of Think Coffee at 1 Bleecker Street. The tour ends where it begins.
