Works by Keith Haring and Chakaia Booker, on display in Hamilton, suggest that the market tends to tame the mischief of street art.

Saturday, June 5, Will Kasso and Myself were invited to paint a car at the Grounds for Sculpture. We were very excited about this project being that the Grounds is such a special place and a great art institution. It was surreal with the sculptures and peacocks running around. Turned out crazy the car will be on display for at least the rest of the month. So if your in the neighborhood drop by.
Excerpt from original press release:
Grounds For Sculpture will paint a car! Gratuitous of a vehicle
donation by Suburban Wrench of Pennington, NJ, Grounds For Sculpture will conduct a very special demonstration as local graffiti artists Leon Rainbow and Will “Kasso” Condry invoke the spirit of popular avaunt garde artist Keith Haring and the iconic occasion in 1982 when Haring painted a BMW. Experience this unconventional art piece come to colorful life in a modern day variation!
Great work Leon. really loved the 2 styles.
My son and I saw you working on the car, we really enjoyed watching you work and seeing the results!!!!
