Riverfront Art Gallery

                                              

CURRENT EXHIBIT:
 

 
July 16 - August 31
 
 
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.
