Saturday, more than 50 graffiti writers will descend on Fort Lauderdale and bomb cement walls until FAT Village looks like the South Bronx circa 1983. But theyre not vandals. The FAT Village Art Walk, which is held on the last Saturday of every month, will host the New Era South Florida Graffiti Expo, produced by Renda Writer of WeMerge Magazine. The 12-hour event will begin at 2 p.m., and admission is free. Graff heads will start getting busy at 17 NW Fifth St. Theyll paint throughout the day and night with live performances and DJs over on the north side at 523 NW First Ave. Though the event conjures the starter-hat era, there will be a booth selling New Era fitted hats and other goods. You can get more details for the event from the New Era South Florida Graffiti Expo Facebook page. For a video walk through FAT Village, check out fatvillagearts.com.
