In The Headlines

This will be my last post from CT for a while. I'm in the process of packing up and heading to New York City for the summer (hopefully permanently, if I can find employment). If you or anyone you know is aware of job openings down there, please please please let me know! At the moment, my move is temporary but I would love nothing more than to stay. Anyway, in the midst of all this moving chaos, I still managed to pull the headlines together. While I wrap up this work week, you should check them out.

Eveyone’s abuzz about the new Banksy exhibit opening in Bristol.

With so much popularity, some question Banksy’s street credibility.

NC State student Joseph Carnevale, a.k.a. U Live and You Burn, was charged with larceny after he remodeled some construction barrels.

Paris’s Musée des Graffiti may be less frequented than the city's other cultural centers, but it’s definitely worth a look.

Street art’s gaining popularity in the most unexpected locations. Take a peek at what’s going on in Uganda.

Shepard Fairey finally speaks out about his Boston arrest earlier this year.

Out in California, street artist Este gives motorists a new type of hood ornament.

The New York Times discusses graffiti’s growing popularity around the globe.

In Edmonton, Canada, city officials try to sort out the difference between graffiti and vandalism.

If you’re in Paris on June 15th, stop by le Grand Palais for Mimi the Clown’s latest exhibit opening.

Due to the Tube strike in London, Remi Rough’s aforementioned show at Urban Angel was postponed until Thursday, June 18th.
