Jean-Michel Basquiat Historic Plaque Ceremony
The great American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) forged an innovative and inspiring language that melded his urban American experience with his African-Caribbean heritage. The painter, collagist, and musician lived and worked at the height of his career in the 1980’s in a loft studio in NoHo, and his connection to the city was integral to his work. Join Village Preservation and Two Boots outside 57 Great Jones Street to unveil a historic plaque that marks the site of his former home and studio. In the unveiling ceremony, we’ll celebrate and explore the invaluable work and local connections of this essential artist.
