DIGITAL GRAFFITI OPENS THE CALL FOR ENTRIES
The 11th annual international projection art festival in Alys Beach, FL
The Alys Foundation announces the call for entries for the 11th annual Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach, to be held May 18-20, 2018. Artists worldwide are invited to submit original works of digital art to be showcased in the juried festival. Awards include Best of Show ($5,000 prize), Curator’s Choice ($2,000 prize) selected by the festival’s longtime curator Brett Phares, and three Special Recognition honors ($1,000 prize each). The deadline to submit is February 1, 2018. Staged along the elegant white walls of Alys Beach, Digital Graffiti provides a large-scale blank canvas for artists to explore the intersection of art and architecture, while also creating entirely new art forms. Once darkness falls, the iconic white walls of Alys Beach’s homes glow with vibrant original art projections. Digital Graffiti 2018 promises to deliver a fascinating experience in immersive projected art. The Alys Foundation has given more than $200,000 in awards and artist stipends over the past 10 years, all to further digital work in the public realm. Artists, designers, photographers, and architects are invited to submit their artwork to be projected under a light-starved sky and onto the pristine, reflective white walls of Alys Beach. The evenings of May 18-19 will feature the town lit with stunning examples of projection mapping, generative art, experimental short films, and animation (maximum 2 minutes), and sound, motion, and/or light responsive installations.
