Street Art Festival 2019 -- August 17-31

FRESCO’s Street Art Summer Festival this year is developing our academic research into a publicly accessible event, encouraging the general public to interact with all participating organizations and individuals and fostering a deeper understanding of street art. 

This festival is going to include panel discussions, movie screenings, Q&A, workshops and street art tours with prominent artists such as BoogieJ, Tysen Knight, Coco144, and Lady Aiko. Some of the highlighted sessions are artist’s interventions in the community, the marginalization of female graffiti and street artists, commissioned versus independent work, and the lawfulness and criminalization of certain street works. 

FRESCO’s Street Art Festival 2019 is made possible by the New York Public Library, Arts on Site, Graff Tours, and Film Noir Cinema.
