“the Albert Barnes of graffiti”

martin-wong-collection
 
Chances are if you have ever read a book on graffiti you’ve seen the credit from the Collection of Martin Wong. Residing on the Lower East Side in the 1970s and 80s, artist Martin Wong forged relationships and mentored early graffiti artists—his studio acting as an impromptu clubhouse—and collected as much work from them as possible. Five years before his death in 1999, Wong left the entire collection to the Museum of the City of New York, helping to preserve the history of this important ongoing art movement. On February 4th, “City as Canvas: Graffiti Art From the Martin Wong Collection” opens to the public, featuring “never-before-seen highlights of this collection.”

Megadrought

megadrought-california

Is this drought in California going to last another 2 years, or 200? These are questions going through scientist’s heads as they study the long-term climate patterns in the Western states. Through tree ring and other earthly data, researchers have identified multiple 10-20 year droughts occurring over the last 1000 years, and even worse, “ancient megadroughts” happening from 850 to 1090 and 1140 to 1320. With the Colorado River being run dry, and Arizona in the midst of its own 14-year drought, the outlook isn’t too great for a quick return to the ‘wet’ years of last century. So what will happen if this drought continues for a decade or more? Farms will disappear, desalinization plants are likely, and most importantly, Californians will adapt. It won’t be the end of the world, but man, will it be expensive.
