Paint the Town.... Modern Rainbows.

Dutch artists Jeroen Koolhaas and Dre Urhahn — who work under the name Haas&Hahn— want to paint New York neon... at least part of it. In an exhibition opening at Storefront this weekend, they're proposing an "intervention" into Lower Manhattan's low-income housing.

They've already completed paintings in a Brazilian favela — a project that combines art and activism. In collaboration with young people from the area, they've been decorating the slums of Rio and Sao Paulo with giant rainbow-colored murals.
