This is the last weekend to see "City of Kings: A History of New York City Graffiti" at Howl! Happening on First Street (6 E. First St. at the Bowery).

The ambitious and detailed two-part show was put together by Eric Felisbret, Mariah Fox and Al Diaz (pictured above). The First Street exhibit focuses on the chronological framing of the history of graffiti in NYC. 

Meanwhile at Howl! Arts/Howl! Archive, 250 Bowery near Stanton Street, you can check out canvases by graffiti artists such as Crime 79 and photographs by Henry Chalfant, Martha Cooper, David Gonzalez and others who helped document the scene over the years. This exhibit is up through Jan. 29.

Both Howl! spaces are open Wednesday-Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Details here.
