The Lower East Side-based street artist Lady Millard alerted us to a super cool Kickstarter campaign for an upcoming preview exhibition for the “UNDER ONE ROOF: Art for the Arts” project. The show is planned as a kind of guerilla exhibition of street art and its influence on contemporary popular culture. The show is part of a larger project involving a group of some 50 artists that is renovating and turning an old brownstone house in the Bronx into a shared, public live-in artist studio space. The campaign is to fund the exhibition, as well as a documentary about Under One Roof. The show runs from May 17 – 30 and will include artwork by artists such as Swoon, Ben Frost, Street Level Culture, and 4Fun, as well as work by Lady Millard herself.
The artist and “Lady” tagger who goes by the name Lady Millard put her signature cursive and umlauted spray tag on this large black-and-white American Apparel ad on the side of a cast-iron building on Mulberry Street in Nolita, in New York City. “Lady” has been popping up everywhere downtown in recent weeks.
