raphiefixrobot.jpgIf you're a fan of street art, tonight's discussion at McNally Robinson (50 Prince St) in Soho might be of interest. Moderated by the husband and wife team behind the Wooster Collective, the online resource for street art around the world, The City as Collaborator: Documenting Contemporary Art on the Street panel will focus on how street art has grown and contributed to the city.

Other panelists include: Kelly Burns, the driving force behind the New York street art book, I NY; Martha Cooper, photojournalist and author of Hip Hop Files and Michael DeFEO, author of children's book, Alphabet City: Out on the Streets. The talk begins at 7pm.

And if you are looking for other ways to feed that sweet tooth for street art without walking the streets in this heat, Swoon's exhibit at Deitch Projects is up until August 13 or you can always check out street art here.
