Street Art Cinema
As long as there are walls, there will be graffiti and street art. And as long as there's graffiti and street art, there will be active and vocal proponents and opponents of both. The Orange Show features two films concerning this constant battle with its presentation of Street Art Cinema. In the lineup is Alex Luster's documentary Stick 'Em Up, which chronicles the underground wheat-pasting movement in Houston and features interviews with local artists, law enforcement and collectors. Completing the program is Vigilante VIGILANTE, which shows how many who oppose graffiti and street art take action into their own hands, painting over tags and creations, leaving behind monotone blocks of color in place of the images. Houston artists Give Up and Dual are scheduled to showcase and sell their artwork at the screening.
