Don’t miss the Digital Graffiti Festival 2016 in Alys Beach this upcoming weekend!

Digital Graffiti Festival

This year, Alys Beach opens its doors again to innovative artists who transform the entire resort town into a living work of art during Digital Graffiti of 2016! Mark your calendars with the following dates: May 13-15, 2016.

Founded in 2004, Alys Beach is one of the most beautiful emerging towns in the world. Located in Northwest Florida on Scenic Highway 30A. Alys Beach’s extraordinary architectural vision drew inspirations from both Bermuda and the family courtyard homes of Antigua, Guatemala.

Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is a one-of-a-kind projection art festival where artists use the latest digital technologies to project their original works onto the iconic white walls of Alys Beach.

“Alys Beach becomes their blank canvas,” said Kelli Siler, Alys Beach Director of Events. “Digital Graffiti explores how design, technology and architecture can intertwine to create entirely new art forms.

The three-day festival includes a Curator’s Tour of select digital art, Digital Graffiti Festival, and Sunday Brunch.
