For months now “The Candle Building” aka: 11 Spring Street, has been undergoing extensive ornamentation by NYC street and graffiti artists under close supervision by The Wooster Collective in preparation for this Friday’s three day public opening, after which the historic space will be transformed into upscale condos. A longtime destination for the city’s graff community, this formerly abandoned space has been a virtual museum of spray paint and wheatpaste installations for years now. Luckily, the building’s new owners had the foresight to recognize the space’s artistic role in the community and turned it over to the WC to curate a last gasp show of the town’s biggest & brightest who have left no spot uncovered in their final grab at fame on the building’s walls. Don’t miss your chance to see one of the city’s most exciting (and free) art exhibits in years: Friday, December 15th: From 11am to 5pm; Saturday, December 16th: From 11am to 5pm; Sunday, December 17th: From 11am to 5pm (special artist panel discussion at 3pm)…
