Museum of Graffiti pops up in Washington, D.C. (includes video story)

Miami’s Museum of Graffiti has brought its Sneaker Stories exhibit to Washington, D.C. The exhibit explored the cultural significance of graffiti in society and how it influenced sneaker culture.

The artists whose work is displayed included Futura, Claw Money and Eric Haze. The exhibit also included rare sneakers released from 2003 to the present day that were inspired by graffiti art. The featured sneakers were produced by big brand companies such as Nike and Adidas.

“Through ‘Sneaker Stories,’ we aim to celebrate the artists who have transcended the streets to appear inside the biggest companies in America like Nike, Reebok and Adidas, only to then influence countless others along the way,” says Alan Ket, co-founder of the Museum of Graffiti.

If you want to experience the exhibit for yourself, look out for upcoming events in Wynwood.
