For thePeople
A street art celebration and the liberation of expression

Curated by: empte eyes, http://stencilarchive.org, and the God Bless Graffiti Coalition

For the People is a study into the global, contemporary street art movement, celebrating the cause and freedom of limitless artistic expression. This show will allow the community to share an in-depth analysis of this culture's meaning(s), progression, and digression. This will be a legal event with progress in mind and a celebration for us, the people, and our local artists. We are trying to independently reclaim the street art movement for the people.

Some comfirmed artists:
swoon (ny), above (us), k2 (sf), Logan Hicks (USA), the London Police (worldwide), Adam Neate (uk), microbo an bo 130 (it), mackplakt (dl), ether (sf), chun1 (thailand), eskae (sf), Chris Stain (ny), peat wollaeger (st. louis), Josh Macphee (Chicago), Amy Rice (minneapolis)

Opening Night will feature:
-art on the walls
- a collage wall
- a flicks wall curated by the God Bless Graffiti Coalition

- a DIY stencil table
- crusty tunes by DJ jepift
- and MORE

Show comes down Oct. 27
