From the edgy to the ethereal and the gritty to the glamorous, street art is a genre that challenges our expectations and defies definition. Explore this urban art form with a celebrity guide in one of New York's most culturally rich districts.

Set out with a professional artist for an insider's look at New York's street art and discuss everything from illicit tags to commissioned murals. Learn about the unwritten rules of the street art community and the ever-changing canvas of the city, and get insight into the role that hip-hop played in shaping today's underground art scene.

In Harlem, start your exploration at the Graffiti Hall of Fame, where 20 different murals decorate the walls of an inner-city playground. Pass portraits of rap icons such as Big L. and Tupac Shakur as you delve into Spanish Harlem, a hub of hip-hop and Latino culture. Listen as your guide tells you about La Casa Azul, an El Barrio bookshop that hosts art events and workshops for writers in English and Spanish.
