Riverfront Art Gallery

                                              

CURRENT EXHIBIT:
 

 
July 16 - August 25
 
 
Taking the name “CRASH” after he accidentally crashed the computer in his school, his name began appearing on trains circulating all throughout New York City.  By 1980, he began transitioning from train yards to galleries, launching the graffiti art movement. To Fumero, graffiti was simply an added extension of cartooning and provided a means to explore lines, shapes, colors and letter design in a new and exciting way. 

 
MadC, JPO, Steph Burr, and Br163 all have worked alongside CRASH.
All have transitioned to painted canvases, which will be featured in our gallery,
but still create art murals for all to see.  All have also contributed to the revitalization of Downtown Yonkers; murals are located in various areas of
Main Street near Getty Square and Broadway.
 
 
 

 

 
Saturday, August 8, 12-1pm
 
Every second Saturday of the month, participants will create their own works of art based on the current exhibit.  This month we will feature the workshop “Street Art from Stencils to Spray”. All participants are welcome to create wonderful works of art to take home using spray bottles with non toxic paint to create a mock spray can painting work just like in the featured art exhibit!
 
All ages are welcome, but registration is preferred.  Registered participants will be guaranteed art supplies.  There will be a $5 suggested donation for each participant for the purchase of art supplies.

 
To register, please e-mail us at:
and include your name and number of participants.
