** I attended the WPA sponsored talke by the Wooster Collective on Wednesday at the Katzen Museum and found it to be a great lecture by passionate supporters of street and ephemeral art.  Check them out online at...  At that time I also checked out the works that were selected for the annual auction and found several pieces to be exciting and intriguing.  I know there are several talks this weekend by artists and curators for the auction
