    Lower East Side Street Art Tour

    Have you ever tried to put your own art on the walls at MoMA? Well, if you've tried than you were probably carted away and tossed onto the street -- where the real art is. Around every corner is an exhibit of sorts, made for the people, by the people. On this guided tour, you will have the opportunity to take in the work of international stars of both street art and "fine art." Tours typically include chats with artist and gallery owners. And context is provided... usually with info about early photography and painting in the neighborhood, and relevant music. With new artists and art trends constantly revolving through the streets and galleries, this tour is always fresh and never scripted. There is never a dull moment.
