Christian Acker

PENELOPE BASS
6-8 pm., Wednesday April 24 | Free.
Upper Playground
23 NW 5th Ave.
 
Few people think of graffiti as anything more than petty vandalism. But author Christian Acker spent years distilling interviews with graffiti artists from across the country and systematically analyzing historic hand styles for his book Flip the Script: A Guidebook for Aspiring Vandals and Typographers. Acker argues that graffiti is “one of the last strongholds of highly refined, well practiced penmanship in our contemporary culture.” Acker will share his findings and present some of the featured art work at the book release party.
