The Urban Decay art show will open on Friday, June 1st at the Workhouse Art Center in Lorton VA.  The show curator, Debra Yarrington gives the following description of the show:

Urban Decay is an exhibition that will focus on the aesthetic of urban low-brow art practices and new contemporary ideologies within the modern art world. Lowbrow is a widespread populist art movement with origins in the underground comic world, punk music, hotrod street culture, street art, tattoo art and other subcultures. New contemporary emerging artists will be showcased alongside professional modern artists that have grown in popularity through common and distinct art practices that appeal to the popular culture of our time. This prospectus is open to all artists who would like to contribute an Urban Vinyl Art Toy to the exhibition.
