What you'll learn in this art history class:

Full course name: Graffiti, Street Art, Advertisers, & the Future of Urban Visual Space

Graffiti, an art form long associated with urban neglect and anti-establishment subcultures, has thoroughly entered the mainstream. With new exhibitions, books, and reality tv shows, graffiti has been financialized, packaged, and traded for high sums. While the aerosol bandits of the 80’s are no more, the tactics of early graffiti writing have been taken up by an unlikely set: advertisers and marketing professionals, who are increasingly looking for new spaces for their industry. With provocative moves picked up from the world of illegal art, advertisers are overhauling their industry, with top execs encouraging firms to “think more like vandals.”

This talk will examine the history of graffiti and its metamorphosis into ‘street art’ with a particular focus on self-promotion, and the interplay between the worlds of fine art, advertising, and vandalism in co-branded street art and guerrilla ad campaigns that borrow from the palette and graphic devices of in-your-face graffiti.

This class can also be taken in conjuction with the lecture, Graffiti: A Visual Taxonomy though both classes can be taken separately as well. Please note this is a talk and not a walking tour. 

Still have questions? Ask the community.

If you're looking for a refund, you need to back out of the class a week before it starts. We know it's draconian, but since we're not charging a million bucks, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings. Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around your friends and see if anyone would take your spot, then just get money from them! We also can't switch you between class sessions or give any sort of refund after the class happens.
