Digital artists to display colorful work on the walls of Alys Beach

Saturday, June 6 – 8:30 p.m.

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.

Sometimes referred to as “Photon Bombing,” “Guerilla Projection” or “Urban Projection,” underground artists around the globe have been using the latest design, animation and projection technologies to cast dynamic images onto skyscrapers and other urban structures as a means of artistic expression. But Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is the first outdoor festival specifically organized to celebrate and showcase these unique talents.

Digital Graffiti is a celebration of digital artistry from around the world.

The contest has received entries from across the globe and includes five local artists as finalists:

“Outside In” by Eric Marcus, Santa Rosa Beach
“Santa Rosa Beach Sand Prints” by Andrea Normand, Santa Rosa Beach
“Shine of the Ever” by Bryan Beasley, Santa Rosa Beach
