Street Art and Graffiti Panel Discussion

The last day to see Shepard Fairey: Supply and Demand is Sunday, August 22. To celebrate the final weeks of the exhibition, the CAC is offering two new programs:

Monday, August 16 at 6pm
Contemporary Arts Center Cincinnati

Street Art Panel Discussion
Join us on Monday, August 16 as Raphaela Platow, the CAC’s Alice & Harris Weston Director and Chief Curator, moderates an engaging panel discussion on street art. Experts on both street art and graffiti will discuss the role of these art forms in today’s society. The panel discussion will be followed by a question and answer period and is open to the public. Admission is free courtesy of Macy’s Free Mondays.

Pedro Alonzo – Shepard Fairey: Supply and Demand curator
Christian Strike – founder, Country Club and Iconclast Productions
Eric Felisbret – graffiti historian; co-founder, at149st.com; author, Graffiti New York

FaireyTrek SCVNGR
Obey the hunt! The CAC has launched an interactive game on the SCVNGR platform to help people explore Cincinnati through the Shepard Fairey murals around town. Smart phone users can find the game at the iPhone App Store or Android Market. Played on a mobile phone, players complete challenges related to the murals in order to earn points, rewards and a unique FaireyTrek badge. Separate Media Alert to follow.
