Shepard Fairey's "May Day" show opened this past Saturday. The noise about Deitch Projects' send-off has been near-deafening, amplified by Fairey's rabidly targeted, heavily guarded, possibly illegal Houston Street mural and a handful of Music Hall of Williamsburg-instigated Band of Horses jokes. So the Derby Day event, and specifically Wooster Street, was mobbed. Mobbed like a street fair. Mobbed like one of the only times you'd ever sympathize with the pissy door guy. Mobbed like this was Splash Mountain and everybody was on April vacation.
But once you finally got inside, this is what you saw:
