The Evolution of Street Art in L.A. is as much a story about how a neighborhood changes as it is how the streets that travel through that neighborhood are decorated by the art of the streets. Tonight, celebrated muralist Judy Baca holds forth with Brooklyn street artist Caledonia “Swoon” Curry and graf-master Saber about everything from the dangers posed to murals by random taggers, conflict between street artists and local authorities, and gentrifiers who value the role of street artists in creating “arts districts” — but then wind up evicting all the artists when they have no more use for them.
