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.
