An exhibition on display in Williamsburg features the kind of artwork you'd once only find on buildings and trains. Actress Rosie Perez opened Beyond the Streets, an effort that was curated in part by artist, producer and filmmaker Sacha Jenkins. "I grew up in this this movement, it was fascinating, it was daring, it was dangerous and it was pure art," Perez said. The movement started with kids and teens spray-painting their names or tagging. "For the longest time people have shunned 'graffiti,'" Jenkins said. "At a time when the city was bankrupt and kids had nothing to do they were writing their names on trains.

I know Roger Gastman from his magazine “While You Were Sleeping.” They did an article about me sometime in the early 2000s. But more than that, we were always sort of in the same orbit.
