Commercial Truck Art: We will be seeing graffiti/street art on commercial cube trucks driving by along the tour route.
In recent years, both graffiti and street artists have been commissioned by companies to create legal art on their trucks, showcasing an artist's work while promoting their business by standing out in vehicular traffic.
This dynamic harkens back to the golden era of 1970s-80s NYC subway graffiti when a "piece" (masterpiece) or "burner" (a brightly colored intricate letter based piece) could travel throughout the city and likely be seen by the public in all five boroughs.
