"Word"

2013 ArtPrize Entry
Save

"WORD" Is a Spoken Word/Hip-Hop influenced ArtPrize exhibit. Displaying the Power, Beauty, and Versatility of WORDS, as an art form. The vast amount of people they can reach. How fast they can spread. The fact that WORDS, have NO STANDARDS, and NO BIAS, means they can be appreciated by ALL, and taken in by ALL who can see, hear, and touch them. This will NOT only be an ArtPrize exhibit, but it will be a 2 show a week,(MONDAY & WED) from the venue, to the street, from our screens, to your screens, from our paper, to your fingers, from our fingers, to your eyes, life changing showcase, that will hopefully change the lives of many, and the outlook of Art Prize, for ALL. "WORDS" Should be appreciated by ALL, they are one of the very few art forms, that can be. And we (The Diatribe) intend on displaying that in FULL effect. This is OUR mural, let the city, and this venue, be our canvas. -TheDiatribe Diatribe: daɪəˌtraɪb; A forceful and bitter attack against someone or something.
