Pantheon hopes to install over a hundred feet of windows on the street across from MoMA with art.

There are only four days left to support a very unique street art project that will create a multi-faceted street art exhibition at the former Donnell Library on 53rd Street in midtown Manhattan, which is across the street from the Museum of Modern Art.

In an era where street art and graffiti is becoming increasingly scarce in Manhattan, this project, PANTHEON: A history of art from the streets of New York City, will explore the heritage of street art and graffiti across the street from the high temple of Modern art.

This grassroots project hopes to fundraiser $5,000 to build walls, create vinyl signage, buy art supplies, print 1,000 copies of the show’s catalogue and other necessities.

The group is only $847 away from their goal, so please lend your support by DONATING on Kickstarter and help make it happen.

If all goes well, the show will open on Saturday, April 2, 5-7pm and continue until April 17, 2011.
