Writing On The Walls: Visual Literacy Through Street Art Culture will be on view from February 14th - April 14th at Jacksonville Public Library.
Including the unveiling of Banksy's "Haight Street Rat", courtesy of the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville on Valentines Day, February 14th. The exhibit opening runs 5:30-7:00pm, with music by DJ Geexella and commentary beginning at 6:00pm.
"Haight Street Rat" was created by Banksy in 2010 on the side of a San Francisco bed and breakfast. "The 2017 film "Saving Banksy" focused on the piece and Brian Greif, a passionate art collector, and street art curator. Greif worked diligently to conserve the piece, preventing it from being appropriated for commercial gain or vandalized by other street artists." - from the event page.
The exhibit will also feature works from Jacksonville area street artists.
