    History in the Making art show showcases graffiti art in Chelsea on June 12th

    Chelsea’s Aurora Gallery, 515 w 29th street, kicks off its four-show summer calendar on Saturday June 12th at 7 pm with its staging of “History in the Making”- a celebration of the underrated urban phenomenon Graffiti Art. The event is free and open to the public. Headlining the exhibit will be the Wallnuts,(MUSE,DEMER,PHYME,BEEN 3) New York’s most famous and prolific muralists and masters of the art of Graffiti. Along with the Wallnuts, the work of 17 other graffiti artisits will be on dispay and for sale.

    Produced under the auspices of its Wet Paints division, Aurora will through June 30th display the sprayed, splotched and splattered results of more than 25 artists creative energies. Utilizing its unique vast outdoor annex in the shadows of Chelsea’s historic ‘Highline’, The opening celebration will showcase graffiti spin off art forms including live music, break-dancing and spoken word performances. The gallery tapped into locations such as Grand Central Station, Penn Station and Union Square to secure these additional artistic talents, maintaining the underlying theme of giving a voice to their underestimated urban genius. New BET show “The Next” will be on site all day documenting this groundbreaking event to be aired later in the month.

    Emphasizing his mission to exhibit and help secure graffiti’s future, Eli Rios- President of Aurora Gallery states, “Graffiti art is a sign of our times. If we don’t preserve and sustain it now we will yearn for its gritty expressiveness years after its demise.” With these words as his promise Aurora Gallery invites all to attend and participate in History in the Making.

    Rios has slated a trilogy series for this summer: “Shut-up and Paint” opens on July 8th to July 29th. The series will feature three artists from New York pushing the limits of technology and providing commentary on pop culture. “Grow-up and paint” showcases thirty emerging artists (August 7th- 31th). A revealing documentation by Victor Bockris and David Schmdlapp of never before exhibited Andy Warhol photo shoot with Mohammed Ali is scheduled to fire-up Aurora’s fall season on September 9th- 29th.
