Take a stroll through the art of streets

Street art has come a long way since its genesis on various urban buildings, walls, subways, bridges and railway cars. Florida State College at Jacksonville’s South Campus is currently welcoming this graffiti-inspired art to its South Gallery at the Nathan H. Wilson Center for the Arts.

Through March 1, 2013, you can view the engaging works of eight Jacksonville, Fla. artists. All are talented in unique and varied ways and use a mixture of different media to convey their messages. You’ll even find some of these gifted local artists on hand, willing to discuss their works with you. Most pieces are available for purchase. Just be sure to leave the spray paint at home.

Also on display is a screen print by the highly influential street artist Shepard Fairey. For more information, contact the South Gallery at (904) 646-2023 or email ellewis@fscj.edu.
