Cash For Your Warhol, Union Square

The Somerville, MA artist who brought the LES “Cash for your Banksy” a few months ago will once again be soliciting in NYC for your Warhol. During next month’s ‘Street Wall’ exhibition, Geoff Hargadon (aka Hargo), is putting his best phone call forward, with brand new visual displays and audio clips from his faux attempts to get people to pawn their pop art. Gallery goers will also be treated to an installation of nearly 200 pruned voicemail messages left by inquiring minds on the “Cash for your Warhol” hotline.

Other street artists will be joining Hargo in this limited pop-up show – here’s a little more on what to expect:

‘Street Wall’ showcases several prolific and boldly talented street artists, who have been have been invited to create signature pieces on custom fabricated panels made from reclaimed wooden shipping pallets. Paintings, drawings, sculpture, and prints will also be displayed.

The exhibit opens on Thursday, March 6, 6pm – 9pm, and only runs until Sunday, March 9. It’s being held at Rogue Space, 526 West 26th St., 9th floor – free admission for both the opening reception and normal gallery hours.  More info can be found at the Aether Gallery.
