The Fairfield Weekly listed the BOMB IT Connecticut Premiere as the one thing to check out this Thursday, the 24th, at the Avon Theater in Stamford. Hope to see you there (there will be a nice door prize at the screening)!
7 Days: The Week That Is
THURSDAY JULY 24
Hop on a train headed to Manhattan and chances are you’re going to see some tagging. Some say this an assault on our cityscapes and others say graffiti is one of the biggest art movements in decades. If you believe the latter, check out award-winning director Jon Reiss’s Bomb It!, a recent documentary delving into the international culture of the street art. The doc was filmed across the globe and showcases the artists and the movement in Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Paris, Tokyo and Amsterdam. It also shows the origins of this art dating back to the ’70s and ’80s and features graffiti legends such as Taki 183, Cope 2, Zephyr, Revok, and Shepard Fairey. Avon Theatre Film Center, 72 Bedford St., Stamford. 9 p.m. $10, $7 for students and seniors. (203)967-3660. www.avontheatre.org.
