Fine Lines

Fine Lines showcases the work of muralists, graffiti writers, graffiti fine artists and street artists.  We named our program Fine Lines because graffiti artists, muralists, and street arts are united by their use of line work in each form.  All of the forms are variations of graffiti, with many variations of style within graffiti.  We value the things that are similar and the histories and leaders of each community and the divergent history that each has been at the forefront of trailblazing.  We honor and recognize the difference between each form and celebrate that there truly exists a fine line between each form.

Public Art Creation

We use a similar process to the one outlined as part of MuralsDC, but we work to give the artist more freedom and control of the work he/she produces as recognition of the sacred nature of their work in creating new community hubs and magnets for attention.  We call our program Fine Lines because graffiti artists, muralists, and street arts are united by their use of line work in each project.
