Worcester Kidz, This is for YOU!

2011-01-23T21:33:26.151-05:00

We found out about an opportunity to support Worcester's finest asset, da Kidz + couldn't pass it up. Friday 4th February 2011 the Worcester Educational Development Foundation, Inc. is hosting “A PRELUDE TO MARDI GRAS” at the Worcester Center for Crafts from 5pm to 8pm. WEDF, Inc. has invited local artists to create a mask to be auctioned off to raise funds for projects in Worcester schools. We decided participating in this event was a better farewell to the city we have called home for the past 4 years. We plan to be at this event so if you can guess who we are don't hesitate to say, 'What up?!'.In case you are wondering yes, it is a Guy Fawkes mask, spray painted green, lovingly hand painted with our 508 Luv icon + cable ties for hair? horns? ticklers?WHO LOVES YA WORCESTER?For more info about the event and how you can donate your mask read on:A CALL TO ARTISTSFor Immediate ReleaseEvent: “A Prelude to Mardi Gras”Location:Worcester Center for CraftsContact: Kathy Ivanowski (508) 799-3083Date/Time:February 4, 2011/ 5-8 p.m. “A PRELUDE TO MARDI GRAS”Worcester, MA – Worcester Educational Development Foundation, Inc.

It's Been a Pleasure Worcester, Massachusetts

(image) Happy Holidays!

Today we have placed 12 new pieces of FreeArt on the common behind the Worcester town hall in celebration of the New Year quickly approaching. We hope you enjoy them.

This will also be the last installment of FreeArt on the streets of Worcester, Mass. since we will be moving back to the UK early in the new year. We have had an incredible amount of fun creating art and sharing it with all of the residents of this city and thank you for all your love and support.

We wish you all peace and love for the years to come!

Boston Herald Article on Graffiti

2010-10-19T06:57:37.351-04:00

Read article here.

Why is graffiti looked down on while our landscape is blighted by advertising trying to sell us shite we don't need? We didn't ask for those billboards yet we have no choice but to live with them. Set up legal graffiti walls in cities and the 'problem' will be solved....

Peace.
