The Levi’s Film Workshop is opening to the public this Sunday at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA) within “Art in the Streets.” At the Film Workshop, the story of graffiti and street art will come to life through a series of collaborative film and video projects.
As part of this project, Levi’s will partner with MOCA on a limited edition Trucker Jacket series, featuring original artwork by 10 exhibiting artists from “Art in the Streets:” Andre, Chaz Bojorquez, CRASH, Keith Haring, KR, Neckface, Lady Pink, REVOK, Kenny Scharf and Shepard Fairey. The collection serves as a retrospective within the world of street art, as the jackets will be released in chronological order from when each artist began in the field.
Each of the ten jackets (produced in a run of 50 per design) is packaged in a special Levi’s x MOCA box. The first three jackets – by Chaz Bojorquez, Crash and Lady Pink will go on sale this Sunday at 11am at the MOCA (as soon as the Geffen Contemporary’s doors open). All proceeds from the sale of the jackets will benefit MOCA and its community programs.
