Visit the Museum of the City of New York on Saturdays in May (10th, 17th, 24th and 31st) and make a large scale mural, as a companion activity to the Museum’s exhibition, City as Canvas: Graffiti Art from the Martin Wong Collection.
And, closer in time (this Thursday) – but what I think will be more of an adult event than kid-fun, the museum is screening “Wild Style” and hosting a chat with the movie’s director Charlie Ahearn, who will also speak about graffiti artist celebrated in the museum’s current exhibit City as Canvas, Martin Wong. “Wild Style” was the world’s first hip hop motion picture. Also on hand for the evening will be street artists Zephyr & Sharp. Light refreshments will be served.
Wild Style is free for Museum members; $12 students/seniors; $16 general public. 6:00pm, Thursday, March 20 @mcny.
Are you ready for Pranksy?

We loved the idea of taking Banksy’s old skool and replacing with our new skool (which is an awesome San Fran based brand, btw!). We borrowed this super cool BoomCase in lieu of the classic boom box (refashioned from a vintage suit case), and a Fresco loft high chair in lieu of the metal stool.And of course, instead of the luggage, we wheeled in Bugaboo’s newest ride, the Classic Cameleon 3, which we promptly tagged.

We are so excited to have our Spring/Summer 2014 Babesta Beat cover featured on Cover Junkie, a website that highlights only the coolest magazine covers. Banksy, meet Pranksy!
Adding “The Musical” adds drama to any ol’ graffiti. Pranksy & the Playground Mob is coming soon . . .
