Alys Beach, Florida Holds Digital Graffiti Festival June 6, 2009

Digital Graffiti

The beach town of Alys Beach, Florida will host the second annual “Digital Graffiti” festival on Saturday, June 6, 2009. Digital Graffiti is the world’s first outdoor projection art festival, with artists using the latest technologies to project original works onto the town’s iconic white walls.

“Alys Beach is welcoming painters with open arms and white walls,” wrote USA Today in 2008. “But with projectors and laptops rather than spray cans.”

Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is the first outdoor festival specifically organized to celebrate and showcase the unique talents of digital artists.

Last year’s festival attracted digital artists, filmmakers, musicians, interactive designers, photographers, VJs, producers, celebrities, agency executives and fans of art, technology and architecture. Over $6,500 in prizes were awarded to artists, with digital submissions being received from as far away as Israel, Austria, Canada, Germany, London, India, France, Italy and China. The 2008 “Best of Show” prize ($2,500) was awarded to Robert Seidel of Jena, Germany for his digital work entitled “Futures.”
