Go See the Graffiti Man
Steve Grody knows graffiti. What he really knows, is L.A. graffiti. Steve has been hunting and pecking his way through our back alleys, empty lots, bridge undersides and train cars for the past twenty years to capture what he believes is an art form unlike any other. The exuberant result of all that research is his latest book, Graffiti L.A., which features kick-ass photos and interviews with L.A.'s most prolific and famously reclusive writers.
Tonight at the Pasadena Museum of History, Steve will be talking about the art, the techniques and the various styles of our local graffiti, as well as the emergence of graffiti as one of the most important visual histories of Los Angeles. Get thee to Pasadena, poste haste.
When: Tonight, 7:30pm
Where: Pasadena Museum of History
Tickets: $15, call 626.577.1660 for reservations
