Giddy for Graffiti

by The Hometown Tourist on May 18th, 2011

One of my most favorite events is right around the corner, Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach.    Alys Beach gives artists from all over the world the opportunity to display their original work while competing for $10,000 worth of combined prize money, awarded in five different categories.

“We are seeing work that continues to push digital materials in unique ways, allowing for more expressive, even soulful, results.  The diversity of work has expanded as well, with submissions coming to us from Turkey, New Zealand and Senegal, to name a few.  This year’s walls at Alys Beach will see even brighter and more provocative work, building on a global awareness and maturity that makes the festival an important venue for projected art and artists,” says Brett Phares, Digital Graffiti Curator for Alys Beach.

And if you’re a social butterfly like me, you’ll enjoy being on the scene and being seen!   The d.j. and strategically placed cocktail bars keep the party moving around the pool and through all the exhibits.   A must-do on your vacation itinerary. The fourth annual Digital Graffiti Festival at Alys Beach will be held on Saturday, June 11, 2011. Purchase tickets here.   Need a place to lay your sleepy head after the party?   Check out Highway 30-A vacation rentals.


See you there!
