Vandals, Vigilantes, or Virtuosos? The History and Power of Street Art

Oct 11, 2017
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Arts Riot 400 Pine St. Burlington, VT 05401

Street art is one of the most popular and best-selling genres of art today. As we explore the transgressive practices of street artists, Champlain College Professor David Mills will confront questions about the ownership and control of public places, about power and difference in the imagescape of the city, and about the nature, value, and place of art in society.
