Scoutmob and 787 Windsor present: The Graffiti Ball 2015

There’s nothing we love more than joining together with a community arts collective to scribble, scratch, spray and deface every single surface we can find. Add to that a historic gathering of graffiti artists for live painting, a dance party and art exhibition at a Scoutmob exclusive event, and you can paint us ecstatic.

  • Exclusive admission to 787 Windsor’s Graffiti Ball on Saturday, October 24, 7-11 p.m.

  • A curated experience with larger-than-life projections and unique canvases
  • Witness the historic gathering of graffiti artists and writers from all over the country as they unite for a one-time-only, live indoor show
  • Dance all night with DJs Speakerfoxxx, Schoolcraft and Tocayo, either out loud or in the Silent Disco

  • Access to Atlanta’s favorite food trucks and a cash bar

Scout Notes

If there’s anything we love, it’s vision. Specifically, a person or organization with a vision to take a neighborhood that’s been overlooked and underestimated, who’s working to bring it to life, and that’s exactly what 787 Windsor is aiming to do. Located in the heart of Mechanicsville, 787 Windsor is a three-acre complex spread out over two warehouses. When you look at it right now, you’ll probably see an old steel foundry form the early 1900’s, but Kyle Morais, Imran Battla, Kawan Moore and Ric Geyer see something more. The group is turning the old, raw space, complete with the original pulley systems and exposed brick from the foundry, into a multi-faceted arts collective, highlighting the community it serves in Mechanicsville. And the best part? Their inaugural event, the Graffiti Ball, is a Scoutmob exclusive event.

That’s right Scouts- for the first time ever, some of the biggest graffiti artists and writers from Miami, Atlanta and New York are coming together for one ultimate night of scribbling, scratching, spraying and defacing, and it’s all for you. You’ll see the gathering of some major talents gathering as they create live graffiti art, but we we’re also giving the people what they want: everyone is an artist at The Graffiti Ball- not just the superstars. So what does that mean? It means every single thing there is taggable. The walls are just begging for your art, and in each room in the complex, there’ll be a huge object to paint, too. Did someone say junk car? Heck, we'll even help get you started- the first 250 people get their own can of spray paint. There’s even a pop-up art supply truck, where you can buy paint and supplies, and then tag the truck, or whatever else you see. Of course, it’s all set to the tunes of Atlanta’s best DJs like DJ Speakerfoxxx (Literally the Best of Atlanta), DJ Schoolcraft, who’s leading the silent disco, and DJ Tocayo. And it just wouldn't be a party without food trucks and a cash bar, so we hope you're hungry (and thirsty.)

So what exactly is this vision of an arts community right smack dab in the middle of an underprivileged area? According to Kyle, Kawon, Imran and Ric, they’re using art to inspire and support the community, to expose the underexposed and the emerging artists, and to show that art is for everyone- not just the folks in Buckhead who can hit a different art gallery every night of the week. And it’s not just about graffiti, either; let's talk community for a second. Down the road from 787 is Dunbar Elementary, where the kids have been working with Kawan and Kyle to create art that will be on display in the community gallery at the Graffiti Ball. These are students who may have never had access to displaying their own art, and Kawan and Kyle are eager to show them that art is a valid means of expression, and that it can affect their community in positive ways. And it's an even sweeter deal, because the kids' artwork is for sale, and every red cent of the proceeds goes back to the school. 787 Windsor is working to improve their community in Mechanicsville, which is a cause we can always get behind, and so can their additional sponsors KIND and Move Loot. Keep up the good work, guys- in the meantime, we'll be practicing our tags.
