This past Saturday, more than 50 of the area's finest graffiti artists came out of the shadows to exhibit their skills at the New Era South Florida Graffiti Expo at FAT Village. In addition to the painters, there were DJs, roller derby grrls, skateboarders, food trucks, and lots of happy onlookers.
The event was lots of fun for all involved, including the walls inside the large warehouse space and out back by the train tracks. Those were some lonely walls, and we can only assume they appreciated the attention. They look happier, at least.
