Join us for Graffiti Jam at Spirit Square on April 25!
Looking for something cool to do on an upcoming Saturday afternoon instead of the same ol’, same ol’? We have just the thing for you on April 25, and to make it even better, it’s free! It involves massive canvases, spray paint, and artistic expression. That’s right, Charlotte will have its first Graffiti Jam in Center City in just over a week!
Spirit Square, 345 N. College St., will be buzzing with live graffiti art demonstrations, dance cyphers, live disc jockeys and much more. People of all ages are invited to try their hand at tagging or just enjoy the talent of local graffiti artists as they paint canvases of all shapes and sizes.
Graffiti Jam is part of Blumenthal’s new Arts on the Edge initiative, which will bring exciting and unique events to the Queen City. Over the course of about six months, show fans will see several hip-hop inspired events in Blumenthal’s lineup, culminating in a world-renowned celebration of hip-hop dance culture called Breakin’ Convention, complete with live DJs, graffiti, workshops and performances, on October 9 and 10 in Knight Theater at Levine Center for the Arts.
