Today I gave a tour of the murals in Trenton to students from the Sociology Department of Rider University. It was a great time...going around the city looking at some walls I myself haven't seen in a while. We started off at Terracycle; where various graffiti and street artist from all over the East Coast frequent and were graffiti classes are also held. From there, we proceeded to several walls through out the city. We all had a great time and Im looking forward to doing more of these tours in the near future. Below is a link to a slide show complied by Professor James Dicikinson of the Sociology Department...enjoy!

On April 8, 2011 at 219 Gallery in Trenton, NJ, S.A.G.E. Collective's first exhibit as a collective successfully opened. Over one hundred people from all over Trenton and surrounding areas made the trip thru the rain to see the artwork and meet the artists responsible for over a dozen murals in Trenton itself. The music performers, who were going to be on the street like a siren calling visitors from the capitol, had to move the show inside because of the rain, which made for a very cozy scene. Windows fogged, house packed, the art show became part concert! The first video is a virtual walkthru of the exhibit for all those far away who can not make it to see the works in person. All the artists really worked hard and pulled off some amazing pieces.
Many thanks to all those involved and everyone that came out! The artwork will be on display by appointment for the next month, if you're intersted in stopping by email Kasso Below are a few snippets of the incredible talent Trenton has on the mic who came out to support...Hustle MC, Polo, and Black Collar Biz...BIG ups!
