In December of 2006, we curated a three-day art show, Wooster on Spring. An unlikely group of nearly 100 street artists from all over the world came together to participate in celebrating Eleven Spring Street, long a premiere destination on the international Street Art map. It featured street art superstars like Shepard Fairey and Swoon as well as emergent talents including JR, Prune, and Doze Green. This book commemorates the 10th Anniversary of Wooster on Spring.
With an Introduction by Shepard Fairey, an Afterword by JR, and an essay from Randy Kennedy of The New York Times, Eleven Spring captures an important moment in Street Art’s history. All the works that were created for the show were subsequently covered up or destroyed by renovation. Eleven Spring allows these vibrant works to live again, ready for a new generation of admirers to enjoy and celebrate.
