GRAFFITI SAVED MY LIFE:

THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF JAMES PRIGOFF

February 3rd – April 7th 2017

Public Programs: Artist Reception

Author and photographer, James Prigoff, has been on a sixty-year quest to document street art, public murals and graffiti from around the world. He is the co-author of Spraycan Art (1987), Painting the Towns – Murals of California (1997), and Walls of Heritage, Walls of Pride – The History of African-American Murals (2000), and one of only a few photographers featured in MoCA’s “Art in the Streets” exhibit in 2011.  Here, Prigoff gives us a small sampling of a personal archive of over 80,000 images, documenting this urban art form, and in many cases, serving as the sole documentation of the art piece.
