Street Art Graffiti Spray Off Contest

Mission:
To expose the Vero Beach art community to one of the fastest growing alternative art forms… STREET ART.  We will show this street art form in a “Positive Light” by holding a one evening event during the NOVEMBER 2018 MSVB Downtown Friday street party. The purpose of the event is to educate our youth and adults to a few artists working in this artistic medium as an alternative and positive way of self-expression, recognition and respect. Our hope is to further strengthen the community’s tolerance and appreciation of all the arts.

Goal:
The submissions, sponsors and sales of the images from this event and exhibit will help us cover our expenses for this event and continue to provide FREE photographic education, programs and opportunities to the underprivileged students and seniors interested in the photographic and alternative arts.
