Wall Writers: Graffiti in its Innocence @AAMP

August 17, 2018 @ 6:30 pm

Event Navigation

AAMP presents a screening of the must-see documentary Wall Writers: Graffiti in its Innocence, featuring interviews with early graffiti artists and pioneers from Philadelphia and New York. This screening of Wall Writers will be followed by a conversation with Philadelphia graffiti legend Cornbread, who wrote his name into history by tagging an elephant at the zoo.

Moderated by The Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News journalist Cassie Owens, this conversation will also include potter, social activist, spoken word poet, and educator Roberto Lugo. Lugo’s graffiti-influenced work draws together hip-hop, history and politics into formal ceramics and 2D works.
