In The Headlines

Congratulations to Wheaton’s Class of 2009. Thanks to them, this past weekend was completely ridiculous: glow stick bonanzas, late night cookie snack attacks, speeches, dancing, and maté, maté, maté. PLUS, I also got to pet a penguin yesterday. (Hopefully, I’ll post a photo when I have time). Although I have to go to back to work, let’s keep the weekend alive with these headlines.

If you’ve got an iPhone, make sure to

Mimi the Clown, Miss Tic, and many other French street artists can be found in "La Nuit du Street Art", a show opening in Paris on May 25.

Bostonist speaks to Ron English about why the city hates street art (or maybe just Shepard Fairey). 

Take a deep breath: “Whole in the Wall: 1970 to Now” touches down in New York City from May 29-June 27. Featuring the work of 19 old-school graff artists, photographers, and street artists, the exhibit is the largest U.S. street art show to date. 

San Fran Weekly chats with the editors of I Heart Street Art and finds out why they love to create. 

Graffiti Argentina is currently available in Spain and England. Be sure to grab a copy and keep an eye out for Berlin and Paris releases coming soon! 

Last weekend, the best in street art from the UK and around the globe descended on Brighton for "The Beautiful and the Canned." Check the blog for photos, stories, and commentary.

The Weserburg Museum for Modern Art in Bremen, Germany, presents a collection of works by Victor Ash, Zezão, Swoon, and many others. The show runs from May 15-August 30. 

After he spoke to us, The Krah did an interview with a German publication. He also sent along a video of Athens Graffiti Invasion. Take a look. 

Dan Bergeron is a big deal now, but don’t forget about Richard Hambleton! 

As promised, Knitta descended on Brooklyn Heights and made its parking meters a little more huggable. 

Hopefully, no one jacks the new Faile prayer wheel in Williamsburg (who knows where the last one went). 

Remi Rough plans to kick off summer at London's Urban Angel Gallery on June 9. From 6-9 that night, he’ll be around to celebrate his solo show, "Lost Colours and Alibis."
