'walked by the ACE Hotel to check out both the Shepard Fairey and the Mint & Serf murals -- both still looking good -- though somewhat ravaged. The biggest surprise, though, was in the hotel's lobby -- an amazing sticker installation by Michael Anderson. According to the info a woman at the desk gave me, Anderson is an artist/designer (and more) who has collected over 40,000 graffiti stickers! Among the stickers on exhibit are some real classics like Twist, Obey and ESPO, The Ace is at 20 West 29th St.
Educator, writer and curator. Poetry Teacher of the Year, 1988, awarded by Poets House and NYC Board of Education. I co-authored three books back in the 90's -- two of which were cited as best Books for the Teen Age by the New York Public Library. (The Place I Call Home: Voices and Faces of Homeless Teens and Jerusalem Mosaic: Young Voices from the Holy City.) Both books have also been cited by the Library of Congress for their "strong and honest voice of the young adult." I also authored A to Z : The Book of Rap & Hip Hop Slang -- with entries that have since been cited by dozens of dictionaries.
