On Saturday afternoon, Steve “ESPO” Powers and Todd “REAS” James hosted an dizzying one-day reinterpretation of their legendary Street Market exhibition, without Barry McGee, at ICY Signs in Brooklyn. ICY was Powers and crew’s 5400 sq. feet downtown sign-painting studio on Livingston Street while working on his Brooklyn Love Letters project (covered). With that finally completed, Powers and James took the chance to fill the enormous space with many of their paintings and signs from LA MoCA’s widely popular Art In The Streets show (covered), which was slated to come to the Brooklyn Museum, but was canceled supposedly due to funding issues. Hundreds of New Yorkers packed the studio throughout the day, happy to be able to see the work for the first time.
