Chicago’s National Hellenic Museum has mounted a thought-provoking exhibition of street art from Athens that highlights the evolution of graffiti into a valuable medium of social and emotional commentary and public dialogue. The works in the exhibition were created during the height of the recent global economic crisis, which dramatically impacted Greece. Titled The Street is My Gallery, the exhibition blends visual design with pointed messages for political and economic leaders.
