A Panel & A Condom: “How Does Street Art Humanize Cities”

A couple of weeks ago I attended the Zocalo Square panel discussion on street art called “How Does Street Art Humanize Cities” to support the the homie Man Uno at the Fowler Museum. Along side Man One, the panel included Patrick Polk (Fowler Museum curator), Aaron Rose (co-curator of MOCA’s forthcoming street art exhibit), Retna and was moderated by Jori Finkel (arts writer, LA Times).  It was packed as I’m sure everyone anticipated it would turn into the “Blu Wall/Censorship” discussion.  To see if it did or didn’t click HERE to watch the video.

While we were outside waiting to be let in, we were all handed a condom (photo above).  The photo is fuzzy but it reads " don't be blu DEITCH practice safe art".

Deitch was in the audience that night and  we saw him at the reception after. I wonder if he was given a condom.
