Wooster Editions is pleased to announce the November 2016 release of ELEVEN SPRING: A CELEBRATION OF STREET ART
If you've followed Wooster Collective over the years, you might remember a three-day event Marc and I curated in December of 2006 called Wooster on Spring. An unlikely group of nearly 100 street artists from all over the world came together to participate in an art show celebrating Eleven Spring Street, long a premiere destination on the international Street Art map. It featured artists including Shepard Fairey, Lady Pink, Swoon, D-Face, WK Interact and more (see a more complete list below).
The result was a potent mix of artists who brought the street inside by re-claiming the walls for themselves, and a tipping point for what has become an international art world phenomenon. The three-day public viewing session was a landmark downtown event that drew crowds in the thousands, with people waiting up to five hours to get inside.
All the works that were created for the show were subsequently covered up or destroyed by renovation. ELEVEN SPRING: A CELEBRATION OF STREET ART allows these vibrant works to live again, ready for a new generation of admirers to enjoy and celebrate.
It is hard to believe how many years have passed, but Marc and I are thrilled to share this new project to commemorate the 10-Year Anniversary of such an important moment in Street Art history and in our own lives.
With an Introduction by Shepard Fairey, an Afterword by JR, perspective from owner Caroline Cummings, and an essay from Randy Kennedy of The New York Times, the book will be released in two versions: a standard art book version; and five different Collector’s Editions signed by artists Shepard Fairey, JR, FAILE, and Swoon, and Wooster Collective. The Collector’s Edition comes in a custom bound case and includes a limited edition frameable print from the show’s opening.
PRE-ORDER your discounted copy here. The book will ship in the beginning of November 2016.

Cheers, Marc and Sara.
