The overpriced clothing store that replaced the beloved Café Colonial in the summer of 2010 known as Rag & Bone has offered a free space to graffiti artists as their latest mural project.
Until now the boutique clothing store has been putting up murals done by bone fide artists on their Elizabeth Street façade. R & B’s latest project involves a laissez-faire attitude to who contributes and what they contribute to the wall, a bit of a risky proposition.
Taggers and other vandals, uh, I mean graffiti artists have already put in their two cents, and we’ll just have to wait and see how this experiment turns out. Thank goodness for white paint.
