Graffiti goes high-tech in Alys Beach, Florida, a beach town that will host the second annual "Digital Graffiti" festival on Saturday, June 6, 2009. Artists from around the world will project their original works onto white walls, which will mark the world's first outdoor projection festival.
"Alys Beach is welcoming painters with open arms and white walls," wrote USA Today in 2008. "But with projectors and laptops rather than spray cans."
Last year saw submissions come in from as far away as Isreal, Austria, India, France, and several other global destinations. Over $6,500 in prizes were awarded, with Robert Seidel of Jena, Germany winning the 2008 'Best of Show' prize and accompanying $2,500 purse. This year, the festival is being sponsored by the Cinemin Swivel pico projector co-developed by WowWee Technologies and Texas Instruments DLP Technology.
If you're going to be in the area, tickets to attend run $15 for adults and $5 for under 12 admissions if purchased online ($20 and $5 on day of event).
