What's Digital Graffiti?! ::GASP!::
And it's all taking place right here in Alys Beach, this Saturday (June 6th) from 8:30pmCST to Midnight!Well, Digital Graffiti is the world's first outdoor projection art festival, where artists use the latest technologies to project incredible videos and interactive artworks onto the iconic white walls of Alys Beach. Our whole town literally becomes a blank canvas -- and then a living work of art! It's truly unlike anything you've ever experienced before.
Famous author, TV host and fashion model (for Ralph Lauren, Gap, J. Crew, etc.) INDIA HICKS will host this year's big event. India is the daughter of legendary interior designer David Hicks, who was hailed by The New York Times as "the most famous decorator of his day." India is also Prince Charles' cousin, and is in line to succeed to the British throne. In fact, in 1981, she even served as bridesmaid to Princess Diana.
This year's festival will also be attended by a panel of celebrity and industry judges, including Andrés Duany, founder and pioneer of "New Urbanism", an international movement that seeks to end suburban sprawl; Alan Hunter, film producer and MTV's very first "VJ"; Terry Slaughter, President of the award-winning strategic design and branding firm, Slaughter Group; Lucia Fishburne, The State of Florida's Film Commissioner; Colleen Duffley, international photographer and owner of Studio b; author and marketing guru, Jonathan Salem Baskin; and Brett Phares, professor of interactive media at Marist College in New York.
