Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen and find joy in the simple things. If you’re ever having a bad day, just remember; tomorrow could be the best day of your life.

"I think she’s special. She doesn’t need anyone. Like that’s the thing. Even if we were together, she wouldn’t really belong to me. She doesn’t belong to anything. She’s off in her own world…"

City as Canvas
 Graffiti Art from the Martin Wong Collection
 
Museum of the City of New York, 1220 Fifth Ave., NYC

The first time exhibition of works from the expansive street art collection of Martin Wong.

Martin Wong, an East Village artist and collector of graffiti art, amassed a treasure trove of hundreds of works on paper and canvas—in aerosol, ink, and other mediums. The artists, including Keith Haring, Lee Quiñones, LADY PINK, and FUTURA 2000, were seminal figures in an artistic movement that spawned a worldwide phenomenon, altering music, fashion, and popular visual culture. The exhibition City as Canvas: Graffiti Art from the Martin Wong Collection begins with photographs of graffiti writing long erased from subways and buildings. The exhibition runs from February 4th through August 24th, 2014.

Wong, who died of AIDS in 1999, donated his collection to the City Museum in 1994.
