Gano Grills at the Alice Austen House (video)

A tipster sent in this video of local artist and actor Gano Grills speaking at the Alice Austen House Museum on Saturday.

Gano is known for his graffiti work and acting in television shows like 'Law and Order,' 'Oz' and movies like 'Cadillac Records' and 'Bamboozled.'

The event was a benefit to honor volunteers and community leaders who assist the Universal Temple for the Arts, an organization based on Jersey street in Staten Island.

Some of the honored recipients were people who have devoted their time to teach and inspire young artists in the under served community and help the organization further its mission: Robert Sievert, Sharon Broadnax, Mary Bullock, Gano Grills, Lorenzo Hail, Edward Ladner.

Each honoree received a certificate citation for their service from Assemblyman Matthew Titone and Congressman Mike McMahon.

Here is a short video of Gano speaking at the event:
