Urban art revival

Shane Finneran

From a hairy monster wearing nothing but men’s briefs to a thorn-crowned Jesus with a beef-cow body, the diverse images of Viva la Revolución: A Dialogue with the Urban Landscape are an experience to behold.

Galleries at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego on Kettner Boulevard feature work from urban impresarios such as Banksy and Ezine, while select buildings in downtown San Diego bear the contributions of Shepard Fairey, Swoon and several other stars of the streets. The street art exhibition runs through Jan. 2; for more information, including a map of the sites, visit mcasandiego.org.
