As Saturday, June 9th 2018 wore on, the threesome was getting tired. But the one and only St. Louis stencil artist, Peat Wollaegher AKA Eyez was up next, and he brought the energy they needed. After they fueled up with lunch, the Sold Crew was ready for the artist from the Lou. Sold Magazine was first introduced to Peat last Summer with Bytegirl's Artist Spotlight. This year he updates us on what's been going on with him, and what's coming up!
Representing the Art Makers INC of NYC, Jane Weissman spoke to the Sold Crew next. Her organization paints annually at this event to bring social justice issues to the streets, and give voice to young local artists. This year's mural focused on the March for Our Lives protest against gun violence, an issue we covered earlier this year as well with a piece by Emma Gordon-Levine on Danielle Mastrion's Emma's Eyes mural.
The founder of The Welling Court Mural Project, and Master of Ceremonies, Garrison Buxton was our final podcast of the day. This was the perfect way to end the day, and we were thankful to Garrison for letting us be a part of his special event. It touches each one of us in a special way, but we know how many people travel from all over the world to come to this street art haven annually. Congratulations, we can't wait for the 10th year Celebration!
