ArtTalk – Leon Rainbow
Growing up in California in the 1980’s, Leon Rainbow would see kids creating artwork through graffiti, and he wanted to join them. The colors and movement were cool to him. The artwork was powerful. The act of creating it was impactful. Today, the acclaimed Trenton-based artist combines graffiti with street art and other artistic forms to create innovative, thought-provoking projects. He also teaches art and curates many exhibitions.
Please join us on Wednesday, June 21, for a conversation with Leon Rainbow and learn how this form of artwork has transformed his work and his life.
