Graffiti Alphabet Workshop
Graffiti Alphabet Workshop with artist Michela Martello
Friday, June 16th, 4-7pm, All Ages Welcome!
Pen+Brush, 29 East 22nd Street
As part of our Graffiti Summer Vacation we will hold a series of writing and graffiti workshops. Join us for the first in this series with artist Michela Martello who will teach a workshop for kids on the graffiti alphabet.
Martello’s interactive mural Graffiti Goddesses is currently on view in our space, and has become a compelling site for communal expression and inspiration. Martello has several mural commissions around New York and New Jersey and counts street art as one of the defining influences on her work. Pen + Brush welcomes her blend of strength and softness, of domesticity and demolition, into the public realm, where the art takes a stand against the anxieties of 2017 and affirms women’s power in the face of current political and social devaluing of women as artists and people. Graffiti Goddesses will remain on view throughout the Graffiti Summer Vacation. The ongoing additions of words and art from the public have turned this mural into a vibrant, evolving public art project that serves as proof of the power engagement through art and words that will now spread throughout our entire space with this summer exhibit.
