About the Event


Author, artist and creative placemaking expert Kady Yellow will present a one-hour author talk on July 13 at the Alvin Sherman Library at Nova Southeastern University to support the Husman Art Collection exhibit.

For more than ten years, Yellow has devoted her life to organizing,promoting, advocating for (and once creating) murals, public art/street art, and graffiti. In a 2015 move to New Orleans after teaching an undergraduate class on the subject matter through the State University of New York, Yellow earned a Master’s Degree in Art Administration and
published her first book on the subject area. Yellow is a graffiti scholar and has helped implement hundreds of mural projects around the world.


The book looks at how this ephemeral art form has adorned the streets— coming and going—and shares the context of the murals, tags, wheatpastes, slap-ups, and masterpieces from a lens of work in New Orleans. The author embarks on a journey to educate the reader on the different history, tools/techniques and practices of three distinct art
forms: murals, street art, and graffiti. A first of its kind, this full-color, large-format, hardcover book documenting underground New Orleans street art. The book offers
never-before-told stories featuring street art history over and exclusive first time interviews, comprehensive biographies, and gorgeous photographs documenting 70 artists from, based-in, or visiting the Crescent City.


Light Refreshments and complimentary parking for registered attendees.
