The facade of S&A has been given a touch of NYC by the renowned artist Steven Powers, Powers now a full time studio artist is well known for his graffiti throughout the 90’s in NYC.

He had a smart way of going undetected, if approached he would say ”I’m with Exterior Surface Painting Outreach, and I’m cleaning up this gate”; the official-sounding name, and clever acronym was enough to ward most people off.

These structures were commissioned by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place (like Tjentište, Kozara and Kadinjača), or where concentration camps stood (like Jasenovac and Niš). They were designed by different sculptors (Dušan Džamonja, Vojin Bakić, Miodrag Živković, Jordan and Iskra Grabul, to name a few) and architects (Bogdan Bogdanović, Gradimir Medaković...), conveying powerful visual impact to show the confidence and strength of the Socialist Republic. In the 1980s, these monuments attracted millions of visitors per year, especially young pioneers for their "patriotic education."
