art-in-the-streets-book

Our definition of art is normally limited to expertly executed car restorations, blondes and a perfectly crafted drink. But then a Banksy or a Shephard Fairey comes along and changes everything. Graffiti is art. It might have originally started as street art, but Eminem started on the street too and look how that turned out. The point is, street art is kind of a big deal now. Big enough to get the Museum of Contemporary Art Director, Jeffrey Deitch, to curate a graffiti and street art exhibition. Art in the Streets chronicles the exhibit, the first large-scale American museum exhibition of its kind. It connects the dots between the graffiti and street art movements and highlights their connection to some of our other favorite subcultures: hip hop and skateboarding. It’s a narrated walk down a graffiti-ed memory lane.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
