So next weekend, on both
Saturday May 21nd and on Sunday May 22nd, we will be holding our 3rd Annual
Wooster Collective Street Art Walking Tour through Soho, Nolita, and New York’s
Lower East Side. The tour will be the same on both days. And it’s free.

/>So here’s the deal - We’re not really all that good at saying no to people.
And because of this, there’s a good chance that there will be a ton of people
coming on both days. The problem is that we’ve received so many emails
requesting spots on the tour that we’ve lost track of them. So if you’ve sent us
an email about joining the walking tour then consider yourself included. The
only thing is - don’t get upset if it’s really crowded. We’re gonna do our best
to make it work. We’ve asked some of our friends to pitch in and act as guides
along with Sara and I.

A lot of people have asked for a map of the
route, so we’ve posted it above. This year’s route includes pieces from a wide
range of artists including The London Police,
Faile, Bast, Swoon, Shepard Fairey,  Mike Giant, Tats Cru, Skewville, Space
, and many more. In addition, you’ll see work from some of the
true legends of graf and street art including Cost and Revs, and Barry
.  There’s also an original work by the twins, Os Gemeos and a few Banksy rats lurking around.

So, like all of these
things we really have no idea how many people are gonna show up. The first year
we thought 10 people would show up (eight of them being our friends) and 75
people showed up. The second year, we thought 75 people would show up and 150
people came. This year… we have no idea. At the very worst, it’ll be a great
opportunity to meet people who share an interest in street art. How bad can that

So again, both tours will begin at the Orchard Street Art Gallery
at 139 Orchard Street in New York City’s Lower East Side at 2pm. There is no
cost for the tour.
