One of the highlights of the Creative Mornings Summit was going to New York’s actual Creative Mornings. 600 of us (sorry to the 800! on the wait list) gathered at MOMA early on Friday morning, and after a really warm reception from the NY team, artist Stephen Powers began his talk.

October’s theme is “Crossover,” and Powers’ career fit the bill. He’s toed the line between legal and illegal public art for decades, and has turned his work to messages of love, most recently here in Baltimore. Check out the gallery to see images from his talk. We love his clever, heartfelt words almost as much as his colorful aesthetic.
