Art in the Streets Exhibition at MOCA Featuring Mister Cartoon

After much anticipation, the Art in the Streets exhibition at MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) in Los Angeles opens tonight! The exhibition will feature a slew of street artists including OTW's Mister Cartoon and will take place at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA.  Key dates and information are after the jump.

Tonight is the Artists' Opening of Art in the Streets and will have performances by Busy Bee, Cold Crush Brothers with Grandmaster Caz and B-Boy crew Killafornia.  Saturday night, April 16, is the MOCA Members' opening and will have the same performances.  Art in the Streets opens to the public on April 17 and runs until August 8.

Here's more information about the exhibition from the MOCA website:
"Art in the Streets is the first major U.S. museum survey of graffiti and street art. Curated by MOCA Director Jeffrey Deitch and Associate Curators Roger Gastman and Aaron Rose, the exhibition will trace the development of graffiti and street art from the 1970s to the global movement it has become today, concentrating on key cities such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, and Sao Paulo, where a unique visual language or attitude has evolved. The exhibition will feature paintings, mixed media sculptures, and interactive installations by 50 of the most dynamic artists and will emphasize Los Angeles's role in the evolution of graffiti and street art, with special sections dedicated to seminal local movements such as cholo graffiti and Dogtown skateboard culture. A comprehensive timeline illustrated with artwork, photos, video, and ephemera will provide a historical context for the work."

The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA is located at 152 NORTH CENTRAL AVENUE, LOS ANGELES, CA 90013. If you're in the LA area make sure to check this one out!
