An amazing new mural is in town. The facade of Saxon + Parole has been turned into a shrine to Blondie by graffiti artist Shepard Fairey. The project was curated by the Little Italy Street Project, Bowery Boogie reports, and serves as a tribute to the now-closed legendary music club CBGB, which used to live across the street.
The artist said in an Instagram post (with Debbie Harry herself, as well as Blondie guitarist Chris Stein): "I finished my #Blondie mural across from the former #CBGB’s on the Bowery and @christein and #DebbieHarry were kind enough to swing by for some photos and cocktails. My first solo art show in #NYC was at the CBGB’s Gallery in 1998, so I have a fond history with the neighborhood."
Go check it out at 316 Bowery today! And use this beautiful weekend to see more of the best outdoor art in the city!
