Since the 1970s, SPAR has committed a great deal energy observing the historical aspects of graffiti culture. This long-term commitment led him to found the Web site @149st: New York City Cyber Bench ( The site is dedicated to the preservation of the history of New York City subway graffiti.

SPAR's work as a historian includes curating art exhibitions, speaking engagements and consulting.
