Long Description:
The plaque says, "From 1983 to 1988 renewed artist Jean-Michel Basquiat lived and worked here, a former stable owned by friend and mentor Andy Warhol. Basquiat's paintings and other work challenged established notions of high and low art, race and class, while forging a visionary language that defied characterization."
Civil Right Type: Race (U.S. Civil Rights movement)
