If you care about art, community, and resistance against gentrification in New York City, please come out this Saturday at 3pm to support 5 Pointz, an "outdoor art exhibit space in Long Island City, New York, considered to be the world’s premiere “graffiti Mecca,” where aerosol artists from around the globe paint colorful pieces on the walls of a 200,000-square-foot factory building". 5 Pointz have shown support for Occupy Wall St from the beginning, so let's show them what solidarity means!
