A look at the History of Graffiti in San Diego
A first-of-its-kind look at the history of graffiti in San Diego.
Contents Under Pressure: The Writing on the Wall is a unique exhibit featuring 30 years of urban art created by San Diego-based graffiti artists and Hip Hop photographers – from the inception of Hip Hop in San Diego, to present day – and how today’s artists are showing the world that graffiti is a legitimate and museum-worthy art form. Take a visual tour of early graffiti sites and check out a never-before-exhibited collection of historic graffiti memorabilia.
Original canvases, wearable art, and more will be available for sale. All proceeds will go to future youth art programs and art park maintenance.
