Slideshow: Pop Artists’ Assault on the 21st Precinct



For more than two months, 55 pop artists have been painting the interior of the four-story building that used to house the 21st Precinct. This morning, Sam Suzuki, the chief executive officer of Suzuki Capital, and Colby Swartz, a company director, gave Commercial Observer a private tour of the artwork created on almost every wall in the building, at 327 East 22nd Street between First and Second Avenues. Some of the featured artists are Pesu Art, Giz, Ghost, Savior and Jay Carlos. The opening reception for the art exhibit is going on now and the exhibit will be open to the public tomorrow and next Saturday and Sunday before Suzuki Capital demolishes it to make way for a condominium.
