PAST: ART: Mural Exhibit "Ill Street Blues" based on Street Art and Graffiti at Gallery 31, located inside of the Corcoran, WED, March 27th - SUN, April 14th, Free

"Ill Street Blues" at Gallery 31 at the Corcoran
Wednesday, March 27th - Sunday, April 14th

This new College-organized exhibition at the Corcoran will exhibit painted and pasted murals executed directly on the walls of Gallery 31, with styles and techniques based on street art and graffiti. "Ephemeral and often anti-establishment, this kind of work is sometimes at odds with efforts by galleries and art fairs to commercialize it. Ill Street Blues aspires to frame street art as vivid yet noncommercial art in a nonprofit space. All of the walls will be returned to white at the close of the exhibition."   

Artists include HKS181, PORE, MASPAZ, EXIST, TUC, REI21, ADAPT, QUILL, ZECO, FAME, EXPO, KOHEI, Mensa Kondo, Gregg Deal, Arthur K. Lee, Ignacio Joseph Orzal, Jeanette Sawyer, Alexandra Bubb, and Jordan Sanders.

Gallery 31 is the Corcoran’s dedicated exhibition space for the Corcoran College of Art + Design. The space hosts exhibitions by the Corcoran’s students, alumni, faculty, and visiting artists. Located at the New York Avenue entrance of the Corcoran. Though the Corcoran has a regular admission, Gallery 31 is always free and open to the public during gallery hours.
