Let’s Give ‘Em Something to Talk About …
Illegal art in D.C. is a subject worth addressing from many angles and Red Line D.C. isn’t the only place to do it. If you’re as obsessed with all-things-graffiti as we are, make sure to check out “The Art of Vandalism,” a panel discussion taking place next week (Tuesday, July 26th at 6 p.m.) at Bus Boys & Poets (14th & V st, NW). Words, Beats, & Life, Inc. will be hosting the event as a kickoff to this year’s MuralsDC program and we’re eagerly anticipating their all-inclusive look at the impact of graffiti on our city. Here’s an excerpt from the event page on Facebook:
How do you feel about the graffiti in your neighborhood? Is there a place for it in DC? What is your impression of the people who illegally tag?
Obviously, these questions are right up our alley and, hopefully, the same is true for you. But if that teaser wasn’t juicy enough, keep in mind that attending the event will give you a chance to learn more about Red Line D.C. in-person. You’ll also get a chance to meet Saaret Yoseph — back from her Moroccan adventures — and the other fabulous panelists:
Cory Stowers: Graffiti Writer | Art Director, WBL | Co-owner, Art Under Pressure
Philippa Hughes: Chief Creative Contrarian, The Pink Line Project
Nancee Lyons: Public Affairs Specialist | D.C. Department of Public Works
Tim Conlon: Graffiti Writer | Media Lab Consultant, D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities
