Writers Bench

"In March of 2009 we chose to honor the 149th St. & Grand Concourse bench where graffiti writers began to congregate in the mid 70's. Although there were similar Writers Benches throughout the city, this particular bench was the most popular and seemed to embody the vibrant and tenacious graffiti movement.

The project pays homage to emergent culture and physical social networking sites through a plaque and poster campaign. 100 hand-screened 2 color prints were made and distributed throughout the NYC subway system and the plaque was installed on site.
