Best Graffiti 

Though purists will argue long into the night about how graffiti can't actually be brought into a gallery setting, YOUNGBLOOD GALLERY in Grant Park nevertheless bridges street culture and the art world in fresh ways. Since its inception in 1997 in a former TV repair shop, the gallery has recognized the importance of graffiti by staging an annual graffiti exhibition (this year's featuring Hense and Born), as well as graffiti influenced artists, like this year's The Animal Show. The art space also features a range of national and local writers on its exterior walls, including Gtek, Raven, Glue, Stem, Web and Totem. The gallery is currently trying to secure permits to allow the exterior graffiti to remain following the implementation of a city ordinance penalizing businesses that don't clean graffiti from their facades.
