5. Graffiti Hall of Fame Has New Subway Theme

The Graffiti Hall of Fame in El Barrio received its annual renewal again in late August. The street art hotspot in the playground of the Jackie Robinson Educational Complex between 106th and 107th streets is not usually open to the public, but each year, the executive director of the Hall of Fame, James Top, invites artists to execute new work on a specific theme. This year, the theme was “The Subway Edition,” focusing on the subway in the late 1980s. Read more about the Graffiti Hall of Fame here.
