This two-part presentation will cover both the regional graffiti/street art scene as well as the broader history of street art on a national and international level.

Cleveland artist Bob Peck began his long career with street art and is considered one of the region’s leading experts in the genre. Peck has exhibited his abstract, graffiti-inspired paintings in galleries for over a decade and has been creating commissioned public art and murals for nearly twenty years. Peck’s portion of the presentation will focus on the history of Cleveland graffiti from the 1980's to present day. It will showcase photos of regional work, spotlight local artists/crews and even include a few harrowing stories of “close calls and sketchy situations” while painting.

Roger Gastman, one graffiti’s foremost international authorities, will place the regional street art scene into a larger national and global context. Gastman is a curator, graffiti historian, urban anthropologist and collector who Forbes says “has made a career of being the cultural connector between street artists and the art world.” Gastman founded and co-published Swindle magazine with Shepard Fairey, co-authored The History of American Graffiti and co-produced the Oscar-nominated Banksy documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop. His most recent project, Beyond the Streets (BTS) is the premier exhibition of graffiti, street art and beyond and will features over 100 artists and opened to the public in Los Angeles on May 6, 2018. It runs until July 7th, 2018.

The History of Street Art with Roger Gastman and Bob Peck is free and open to the public, courtesy of a matching grant by Cuyahoga Arts and Culture (CAC). Please register via the FB TICKET LINK or by calling our offices, 216.721.9020 or emailing [email protected] to reserve your spot.
