Jump!! LA: Art in the Streets

This week marks the last week of the first major survey of graffiti art in the United States: Art in the Streets at the MOCA at Geffen Contemporary. One of MOCA LA's most popular exhibits comes to a close August 8th. To commemorate one of the most intriguing and vibrant expressions of street art, Jump!! comes to LA. Jump!! began in 2008 in New York City as an event meant to re-invent art by expressing as much joy as possible in front of it. Much in the way in which graffiti art is meant to re-invent the wall over which it's sprayed, bodies become the throw up.
