Our 'revolution', is to change the paradigm of what is considered art in this community. Beauty comes in many different forms and uses endless mediums. Our goal is to eradicate the misconception that 'street art' is bad by exposing new viewers to the varied gifted artists that this city envelops. It is this combined dynamic that caused us to choose the name 'Street Art Revolution'.Our mission is to give them both a platform and an audience.
The program invites one or two local artists per season (fall,
winter, spring, and summer) according to wall availability. In partnership with West Palm Beach DDA, and other
community stakeholders, each mural project integrates programming with
other artistic disciplines (such as
poetry, music, theater, and fashion).
