Learn about the underground culture of graffiti, its history and how it continues to evolve today as an art form.  Led by Shane Pilster of 82 Concepts, the tours will walk you through the entire site, highlighting works while encouraging open discussion about graffiti as a whole. The workshops give our guests a hands on experience with design, letter form, specific techniques, and painting with aerosol.
