The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (MOCA), is showcasing a first ever U.S. exhibition of graffiti and street art. “Art In The Streets” cultivates the movement of the development of graffiti and street art ranging from the 1970′s to current movements in major cities like N.Y, London, San Fransisco etc. It features interactive art by 50 of the most prolific artists, media sculptures, and paintings.

Recently, Bansky is sponsoring free Mondays admission to all visitors that flock to the museum for the duration of the exhibition. MOCA even stated a quote Bansky himself
“I don’t think you should have to pay to look at graffiti. You should only pay if you want to get rid of it.”
