Jon Reiss on CBC Radio One

Yesterday I was interviewed with Fab 5 Freddy on CBC RadioOne (Canada’s NPR) about the graffiti wall discovered at 151 Wooster (discussed previously in this blog).

From Tuesday, December 18th:
“Graffiti’s Holy Grail has been uncovered in Soho. It’s a wall that features some of the greatest graffiti artists of the 70s and 80s, including Jean-Michel Basquiat. But the wall has raised issues about whether or not graffiti is art and what we should do to preserve it. We talk to graffiti pioneer Fab 5 Freddy and doc-maker Jon Reiss (BOMB IT!).
