September 5th to October 1st 2019
Reception and Discussion on September 12, 2019 6:30pm
Malaspina Exhibition Centre, 7085 Nootka Street
Vancouver Island University, Powell River BC

Graffiti has been elevated… Banksy, Choe, Fairey and others are reportedly worth millions. Their art selling in prestigious galleries around the world.

So when did nefarious night raids with spray paint become main stream? And why? And what should Powell River look forward to? We want to start the conversation!

Various contributors will be showing examples of street art from around the world and through the ages and a discussion with local muralists and street artists will follow introductory remarks on September 12. So come join us, as we take it from the streets….
