There has been a lot of graffiti in Houston news this month. First, there was Gonzo247’s unveiling of his Market Square mural (part of the of the Houston Is Inspired campaign led by the Houston Arts Alliance and the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau). Then, news broke that graffiti artist/Picasso vandal Uriel Landeros may soon be out on parole and returning to his UH studies. Then last night, Daniel Anguili’s benefit at War’Hous Visual Studios (there are still a few blank walls in Houston and Daniel needs to buy more paint!) sold out.
Tonight, the Station Museum will present the work of 18 graffiti and mural artists in the exhibition Call It Street Art, Call It Fine Art, Call It What You Know. The works made by these artists are “an expression of personal anarchism,” says Station curator Jordan Poole. “As the world becomes more corporatized and monotonous, and thus continues to render our lives evermore insignificant, these artists articulate the sentiments and attitudes that carry a message of personal growth.”
The opening will take place from 7-10pm, with opening performances by Say Girl Say, P.S.A., Shaun Kelly, and Damaj Ritual.
