{image-1} The exhibition 10 Years of Wooster Collective: 2003-2013 is opening at a pop-up gallery in Chelsea on Wednesday, August 7th, with a reception to be held from 7-9pm. Curated by Wooster Collective founders Marc and Sara Schiller, the exhibition is a celebration of urban art and its versatility over the past ten years and onward into the future. The exhibition’s featured works capture the energy and creativity of the artists who have matured with Wooster Collective over this past decade, showcasing their talents in a collective exhibition. As Marc and Sara Schiller understand quite well, street artists may differ from one another in mode of expression and style, but they all seem to adhere to a shared set of principles: the reclamation of public space, the beautification of the environment, and the ongoing battle for freedom of speech. By working in accordance with these principles, street artists have become catalysts for people of all socioeconomic backgrounds to challenge existing social structures and institutions, expressing themselves freely and openly. Over the past decade, Marc and Sara Schiller have been avid supporters of the street art movement, helping artists promote their messages to a wider audience through a global online community. 10 Years of Wooster Collective: 2003-2013 is a celebration of street art’s power to transform people and societies for the betterment of us all. On Wednesday July 17th, Marc Schiller tweeted that the artist list for the show will be kept secret until the opening, but to “expect it to be as epic as 11 Spring. Lots of installations,” referring to the monumental 11 Spring Street show.
There will be limited edition prints and zines for sale at the show. 10 Years of Wooster Collective: 2003-2013 An Exhibition Curated by Marc & Sara Schiller August 7-24, 2013 Opening Reception: Wednesday, August 7 | 7-9pm Pop-Up Location: 525 West 22nd Street, New York, NY 10011
