Alys Beach, FL-- (January 16, 2013) Alys Beach and its groundbreaking event Digital Graffiti has led the way for the past six years in bringing art and culture to the South Walton community and Scenic Highway 30A by providing a venue and reason for digital artists to showcase their one of a kind works. Now continuing to pave the way for digital art, Alys Beach will bring yet another event series to the community, where previous Digital Graffiti artists will convene January 23-27 at Alys Beach for the first workshop series of its kind. The public will have the opportunity to interact with these artists and get a glimpse into their creative process.
During the Digital Graffiti Visiting Artist Series, past participants and winners from Digital Graffiti will reside under one roof and work with DG Curator Brett Phares to create a collaborative work of art in addition to individual pieces which may be included in the 2013 Digital Graffiti Festival on June 7-8.
“We are excited to set in motion a visiting artist series right here in the South Walton community,” says Brett Phares, Digital Graffiti Curator. “We're bringing artists to Alys Beach to get to know the lay of the land, create some site-specific work, and raise the bar for the festival in June.” InFocus, a DG partner, will provide a variety of projectors for the artists to use throughout the series.
The workshop series is complimentary and open to the public on Saturday, January 26th from 4-6pm at the Alys Beach Community Center on 60 McGee Drive. During this two-hour workshop, participants will have the opportunity for discussion with the artists in residence, and a question and answer session.
