The 13th annual Digital Graffiti event in Alys Beach on 30A is going to look a little bit different this year. In 2021, this artistic event will be transformed into an immersive, drive-through experience! This means participants have the opportunity to enjoy the digital creativity of artists from around the world in a whole new way. It’s bound to be a unique experience that you don’t want to miss.
If you haven’t heard of the Digital Graffiti event, or don’t know what it’s about, you’re in for a treat. Each year, Alys Beach hosts an incredible art festival that features digital art from artists from around the world—art that is projected onto the town’s iconic white walls. Artists use the latest technologies to create their one-of-a-kind masterpieces and project them onto the walls. This kind of art has many different names, from “photon bombing” to “urban projection.” The world is literally a canvas for these incredible artists, and we love the results!
Filmmakers, digital artists, photographers, designers, and musicians are just a few of the types of artists that use this transformative method to showcase their art. Submissions to the Digital Graffiti event come from across the globe, including Germany, France, China, India, Israel, and many other countries. The Alys Beach Digital Graffiti festival focuses on gathering these global artists together so they can share their work with their fellow creators and with the public. To add to the fun, cash prizes are awarded to participating artists, with categories such as Best of Show, Curator’s Choice, and Special Recognition honors.
Every year, this creative celebration lets you see Alys Beach in a totally new light. By day, the white walls glow magnificently under the Florida sun. The architecture blends seamlessly with its coastal surroundings. At night, during Digital Graffiti, the architecture becomes a stunning mosaic of light and color. Spectators of all ages “ooh” and “ahh” at the visual presentation. Previous years combined the artistry with live music, vendors, and food trucks for a fun and memorable experience. While this year’s format forgoes the outdoor festivities, the larger-than-life art exhibition is what spectators really love about the event!
This year’s Digital Graffiti will take place from May 12 to May 15, 2021. Tickets go on sale to Alys Beach homeowners only on March 1, while the general public can purchase tickets on March 15. Due to the drive-through nature of the event, limited tickets are available and advance purchase is required if you plan to attend.
