Dating back to ancient times, graffiti has been used for decorative, commemorative, promotional, social, political, vain, celebratory, and nefarious purposes. Spray paint became the primary medium of the graffiti artist in the 1960s and has been the primary tool since. This group exhibition features artists exploring themes in contemporary graffiti, mastering the use of spray paint, and using contemporary graffiti techniques to express Jewish ideas and texts. Artists: Hillel Smith, Arielle Krasner, and Rabbi Matisyahu Tonti.
