Ever wonder what Graffiti is all about? Join us for a talk and stylized writing workshop with a Graffiti/Writing Artist.

He will talk about history and what is happening currently with this art form.

We will also explore lettering and experiment with creating our own.

CANCELED // “Style Wars” Movie Screening @ Main Library
Mar 19 @ 6:15 pm – 8:00 pm
CANCELED // "Style Wars" Movie Screening @ Main Library | Dedham | Massachusetts | United States

Join us as we continue our Graffiti Series with “Style Wars”, a documentary film that premiered in 1983, when the world received its first full immersion in the phenomenon that had taken over New York City. The urban landscape was physically transformed by graffiti artists who invented a new visual language to express both their individuality, and the voice of their community.

In STYLE WARS, New York’s ramshackle subway system is their public playground, battleground, and spectacular artistic canvas. As MC’s, DJ’s and B-boys rock the city with new sounds and new moves, we see street corner breakdance battles turn into performance art.

Winner of Best Documentary at Sundance Film Festival.
