The 1st NYC Mural Festival
But, aside from murals, this festival is going to be a totally family friendly, as guests of all ages are welcome and there will be something for everyone.
On Thursday, August 6th, established artists will be a part of a panel that will be held at also famous Jonathan LeVine Gallery at 7 PM. Then, on Friday, the sculpture garden will open at 114 Mulberry Street, featuring the infamous bust of Edward Snowden, a work by Andrew Tider and Jeff Greenspan. In the evening, there’s another panel in 7 PM, this time on illegal vs. legal street art installations, at Con Artist Collective.
On Saturday, kids will be able to learn how to create their own signature sticker, while learning about sticker culture.
Also, from 5 PM to 7 PM on Saturday, a live illustration battle will be held between street artists Crash and BIO, where they need to cover 25 feet high walls with black and white images in hour and a half. The winner will be decided by the amount of applause by the audience.
After that, a never seen European cut of “Banksy does New York” will be shown outdoors, and on Sunday there will be a musical concert, with projection of completed murals from the festival.
