Write of Passage Presents 'Piece Out'

By - Thursday, September 19th, 2013

This past week at Kingston’s Trolley Museum of New York, an event took place honoring the origins of subway graffiti. Write of Passage, a global educational platform discussing graffiti culture partnered with the museum to host Piece Out, an opportunity for writers to paint a vintage NYC subway car legally. Curated by writer/folklorist Sacha Jenkins, Piece Out opens up a dialogue that explores the history and impact of American graffiti on global culture. EWOK, SP.One, REAS, SYE TC 5, WANE COD, CHINO and KEO were invited to Kingston to participate in the exclusive event which is a prelude toward an expansive program coming in October at the Red Bull Studios in New York. “Thirty-plus years later, Subway graffiti is a global phenomenon–a language with many regional dialects. The fact that the Trolley Museum is one of the first American institutions to recognize the powerful language that was born on our soil, says a lot about how the culture has evolved.” — Sacha Jenkins Photo Credit- Alexander Richter
