A snapshot survey of the artists, gallerists, and fans in the city's bustling urban art scene, including: six street artists tell the stories behind their sidewalk images; Jake Malooley tells the story of the late street artist Brooks Golden; Aimee Levitt profiles Anna Cerniglia, the queen of the Pitchfork Festival's art village; Laura Pearson maps out Patrick Hull's journey from the boardroom to the gallery; we offer up some tips for street artists to follow on Instagram; and a handwriting analyst gives their take on some tags. On the B Side, it's our annual coverage of the Pitchfork Music Festival, featuring previews of all the acts playing on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
