ART: Artists Urge Community to Save 5Pointz from Demolition
SAVE 5 POINTZ
Though it seems inevitable as far as 5 Pointz is concerned, you can still do something to preserve a vital piece of New York City’s art culture. A rally is being held from 3-5 p.m. at the graffiti mecca today (Nov. 16) to address strategies to save this undeniable landmark in Queens. Artists are also urging the community to take a last stand and sign the petition seeking official status as such.
“We need your support, we need to show the city that art has value and money is not greater than culture,” rally organizers shared in an email and on the official 5 Pointz website. “This fight is bigger then graffiti, bigger then a building, it’s about preserving something priceless, a piece of history and a monument known over the world.”
