The Great State Fair Graffiti Jam 2015

GRAFFITI, ARTDusty GilpinComment

For the last 5 years I have been invited by the State Fair of Oklahoma to curate a graffiti demo mural. First and foremost, I want to give a huge 'THANK YOU' to Nancy Nortz, Jenny Grigsby, and the rest of the staff from the Oklahoma State Fair that have helped in making this a really great project. I also want to note how truly progressive this project is, for the State Fair to reach out to us for the last 5 years and invite graffiti artists to paint at their event is really incredible. A lot of people dog Oklahoma for not being progressive but there are some really forward-thinking events in this state, you just have to find them.

THE REALLY INCREDIBLE PART is that this year we are increasing our artist line up from 6 to 18!!! We are tripling the amount of production this year, and it is going to be a really amazing art event. Please mark your calendars for September 19th. We will begin painting at 10am and will most likely paint until 5pm. If you are interested in graffiti, hip-hop, wanting to learn the tricks of the trade, want to meet some extremely talented artists or want to get some really great photographs, I highly encourage you to check this out. We will be located on the Bandshell Lawn highlighted on the map below:
