The idea behind Living Walls is to put the work of a very small subset of the population (street artists, graffiti writers, etc), people who actually interact with space, and people who spend their time in discourse about public space all under the same roof. Our intentions are simply to broadcast to the attendees a wide spectrum of ideas about public space, hoping that everyone leaves the event looking at the city, its walls, and how we interact with space differently.
The art was so great and so was the turn out. It makes me so happy to see people supporting the local art scene. It was hosted by The Goat Farm which is actually a goat farm in the city. But it is also a maze of decaying brick buildings that are mostly artist studios now. Events are held there and there is the most romantic coffee shop on the premises where someone is surely writing the next great novel.
