The recent release Vandal Squad: Inside the New York City Transit Police Department, 1984-2004has caused consternation throughout the global graffiti community with charges that author Joseph Rivera is profiting off the very criminals he spent his career incarcerating.
In response, the powerHouse Arena will host a conversation between former members of the Vandal Squad and the graffiti writers, the first such event of its kind.

The event will be moderated by Stern Rockwell, Streets Are Saying Things.
