Untapped Cities Insiders are invited on a special tour of MoSA, the newest project by art collective 5Pointz Creates, led by MoSA Curator and 5Pointz Directore Marie Flageul and New York City photographer  and art educator Rachel Alban. MoSA, which stands for Museum of Street Art, is a site-specific installation housed in the new citizenM Bowery hotel. The tour will be followed by a Q&A session with Marie Flageul.

Spanning 20 stories of citizenM Bowery’s stairwell as well as outdoor works and mural, MoSA is 5Pointz Creates’ largest public project since 2013. This “Vertical Love Letter to the Lower East Side” was inspired by icons of the neighborhood, and encompasses 21 works, with each floor dedicated to a single artist’s craft. The participating artists—all of whom were an integral part of the original 5 Pointz—represent seven countries and span ages 25-65.

This event is co-hosted by Marie Flageul MoSA Curator and 5Pointz Director, and Rachel Fawn Alban, Photographer and Art Educator.
