We Biscuits are reliving some warmer weather events here in NYC and one in particular that stands out for Mamma is our visit to 5 Pointz in Long Island City. 5 Pointz: The Institute of Higher Burninâ€™ or the 5 Pointz Aerosol Art Center, Inc. is an outdoor art exhibit space in Long Island City, New York. The location is considered to be the worldâ€™s premiere â€œgraffiti Meccaâ€ where aerosol artists from around the globe come to paint colorful pieces on the walls of a 200,000-square-foot factory building. Mamma learned about this location when her daddy was reading an AM New York one morning on his commute to work and ripped the article out as a reminder to visit the location at a later date.
Our little Biscuit Lady has really adapted to her new urban living environment and visiting 5 Pointz was a really unique way for her to see street artist create on a legally sanctioned piece of property. It also came as no surprise that the barrio boys, angel thugs and hip-hop kids with there spray cans in-hand took a liking to our little gremlin.
Mamma Biscuit was so inpsired and impressed by what she saw that she commissioned an artist to create a wall mural portrait of herself facing the Manhattan city line. . . . so keep a look out people!
