Photo Blog: "Glamorous Graffiti" at Nassau Museum Part II - Art History.

Take a walk upstairs from the Kenny Scharf exhibit and you will find "Glamorous Graffiti" which documents the important New York graffiti art movement of the 1980s with pioneers such as Keither Haring, Lee Quinones, Jean Michel Basquiat, Crash, Futura, A-One, Toxic and more.  Again, considered to be one of the best and most influential "art times" in NYC these art masters led the way and are shown today in galleries and museums worldwide, thanks to their collectors.
