As the act became increasingly associated with crime, police heightened surveillance of street art. Still, little tags can be seen almost everywhere you look, including bigger pieces that make quite an impact. While some citizens clearly aren't fans of graffiti, others are glad that these anonymous artists are being generous enough to create free, original artwork for the public.  There are many female pioneers who painted the way for women in the mysterious world of street art.

New year, new tracks: BUST is giving you an exclusive first-look at the music video "Find Your Home" from Nashville-based singer/pianist Anna Haas, whose jazzy vocals and vintage-styled aesthetic matched perfectly to the clips, which are culled almost entirely from old films of her late grandmother as a young girl growing up in NYC.

When WORN Fashion Journal was invited to visit the BUST Magazine Craftacular during World Maker Faire, we let nothing stand in our way: not the fact that popular DIY festival was being held in New York City (and Queens at that!); not the chilly weather (some Wornettes should have brought their cardigans); not even that it was being held at the New York Hall of Science, better known as the site of the 1964 World’s Fair, as seen at the ending of ‘Men in Black’ (and we have expected to see Edgar the Alien roaming about).

Whether you’re in a hard-hit city like New York or far away, high and dry, there are things you can do to help. Read More
