The Nassau County Museum of Art presents a street art influenced exhibition, Urban Art Evolution through July 7.

Guest curated by art collector and gallerist Christopher Pusey, this comprehensive exhibition features a diverse range of compositions from the 1980’s through the present by creators who were based in New York City, the Loisaida/LES (Lower East Side/East Village) and close surrounding neighborhoods. Artists pushed the boundaries of what was considered “art” with a primary focus on street/graffiti art. The exhibition’s scope, however, offers an even broader view from other creative residents, who worked inside their studios but still contributed to the rich fabric of the downtown art scene from different vantage points and aesthetics. Works include sculpture, paintings, photography, music, and ephemera from many of the most noted and influential artists of this pivotal time in art history.
