What's Hotter than July? Not much. NYC, and almost everywhere else in the world has seen record high temperatures this month. As citizens there is only so much we can do, and the fix is not coming from the top. As temperatures flare, the streets have been hot as well. We saw a 1st curation by Bianca Romero with the Lombardy Wall Project, and we are smack in the middle of the NYC "Beyond The Street" exhibition, which prominently features the art of Shepard Fairey. On the 19th at BTS, there was a free screening of “Obey Giant,” a film by James Moll. The night before, the Sold crew was at The Flower Shop on Eldridge Street where Shepard was guest DJ. Also throughout the month, we found many huge Obey pasteups around Brooklyn. July was a month filled with WIPs, new walls, and artists sightings, and we look forward to continued art coverage throughout the remainder of the Summer season in the Big HOT Apple.
