Short but Sweet: East Village Art

The East Village of New York City in the 1970's and 80's was a time of change in the artistic world. This was the time when graffiti artists were first recognized as artists and their work moved from subway walls to gallery walls. Artists like Jean Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring were among the very few that survived the move from the streets to be considered legitimate artists.
