Los Angeles Street Art Exhibition Sets Records at MOCA

A Los Angeles exhibition celebrating street art has set attendance records at the LA Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA).

 

According to museum officials, the exhibit brought in 201,352 visitors during its 17-week run.

 

The previous attendance record was set back in 2002 when an Andy Warhol retrospective brought in 195,000 people.

 

The controversial street art event was highly publicized earlier this summer when the anonymous street artist Banksy announced that he would be sponsoring free admission every Monday throughout its run.

 

The record crowds at the MOCA have been drawing comparisons to the hordes of people flocking to New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art this summer to catch a glimpse of an Alexander McQueen exhibition.
