The 12th Annual Digital Graffiti Festival lit up in Alys Beach on May 17-18, 2019!
Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is an innovative and dynamic event that celebrates the intersection of projection art and architecture. During the three-day event, international artists display their original digital art upon the white walls of Alys Beach, transforming the SoWal town into a vibrant canvas of motion, color, light, and fun! The creative festival draws digital artists from across the globe to explore how their fluid forms connect with people and architecture to create spontaneous and wondrous experiences.
When the sun goes down, the lights come up for the 12th annual festival at Alys Beach on Friday evening. Featuring the 2019 projection art installations, food trucks, and vendors along the festival footprint, the opening night street party winds through Alys Beach all the way to Caliza Restaurant where attendees were greeted with music, à la carte food and beverages, and fun for the whole family.
Saturday evening of Digital Graffiti is an all-inclusive food and drink experience, with stops along the festival's path featuring samples by local and regional chefs, winemakers, distillers, and breweries. The evening culminates with desserts, spirits, more art projections, and a live DJ around the pool at Caliza.
Digital Graffiti is part of Art Month South Walton, an initiative of the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County with the purpose to bring communities, organizations and businesses together to present quality arts and entertainment to the community. Spanning the month of May, Art Month features visual, performing and literary arts programming in diverse formats and in various venues throughout South Walton.
