The show opens Saturday, from 7 to 10 p.m., and features 25 faces appearing in manipulated photographs, sculptures, installations, and paintings. Participating artists include 2alas, Claudia Calle, James Brutus, Evoca1, Julie Friel, Stefan Von Fouts, Ruben Ubiera, and Dan Walker.

Llaneza came up with the name as a way to examine the anonymity surrounding the earlier graffiti movement.

She says, "Graffiti artists were really seen as vandals back in the day. Banksy just revealed himself recently, but no one knew who he was in the beginning."

Graffiti and street art are often confused, and the words are incorrectly used interchangeably. The targeted audience is what sharply contrasts these art forms. In sum, street art is commissioned work presented on a wall or public space and is intended for society to view. On the other hand, graffiti is done without permission and is often created in letters or tags. The goal is intended to alert other graffiti writers or graffiti crews that a territory was marked.
