Members of artist Barry McGee’s crew rendered an artwork on the outside of the House of Blues, 15 Lansdowne St., Thursday. The work was done in conjunction with McGee’s mid-career survey exhibition, which opens April 6 at the Institute of Contemporary Art.
McGee was an integral member of the Mission School of San Francisco during the early ’90s — an urban movement led by so-called street artists — and began his career as a graffitist. He has made it a point to subvert artistic expectations ever since.Peter Cocchia can be reached at email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @CocchiaP.
