Below the fold is a small survey of the work at the MOCA LA’s Art in the Streets at the Geffen Center selected by the East City Art Editorial Team. While by no means exhaustive, the following images should give the reader a fairly general overview of the exhibition. The Art in the Streets exhibition runs through August 8, 2011 however, it is rumored that the Brooklyn Museum will host a similar show sometime this fall. We seriously hope that the Brooklyn Museum will not attempt to recreate a filthy alley scene to give gallery goers “a glimpse” of 1970s New York. However, if the curators can’t resist the urge, we strongly suggest they not “enhance” the alley scene by hiring an actor to play a homeless man haranguing the crowd as was done in Los Angeles. We felt as though it was in especially poor taste considering the Geffen Center is within walking distance to skid row where thousands of homeless Angelinos struggle for survival every day.
