Global Cleveland is sponsoring 50 tickets to the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Basquiat: Unknown Notebooks Influencer Meet Up & Exhibition Tour. I

Short Description of Exhibit: In 1977, at the age of 17, Basquiat began collaborating with his friend Al Diaz as SAMO©, spray-painting aphorisms around lower Manhattan. With poetic and critical messages such as SAMO© AS AN END TO MINDWASH RELIGION, NOWHERE POLITICS, AND BOGUS PHILOSOPHY, the tag SAMO© became a familiar part of the culture of lower Manhattan in the late 1970s.
