Leo Kesting Gallery Presents:
Dead Letter Playground:
A Collection of Contemporary Street Art

Closing Night Silk Screen Event Saturday, July 17 from 7-10pm
812 Washington St (at Gansevoort) NY, NY 10014

With the success of the Dead Letter Playground exhibition with strong sales and reviews Leo Kesting Gallery will host a closing night silk screen event for the show on Saturday July 17 from 7 – 10pm. Four screens will be made and pulled for artwork by DickChicken, Clown Soldier, Chris Stain and Lee Trice. We hope you will be able to attend and information on the exhibition is below.

Having left the gallery model for free form street installations, a narrative of artwork is grouped and reconstructed in a reverse white wall format late June at the Leo Kesting Gallery. The collection of prints, illustrations, paintings and installations takes its name Dead Letter Playground as a reference to the tactile paper quality of most works and the open letter format that street art has embraced as building dialog with the public.

Fountain Miami 2010 – 2505 N. Miami Ave. Miami ,FL 33137

Dates: Dec 2-5; 11am–7pm
VIP/Press Preview: Thursday Dec 2, from 11am to 7pm
