Contents Under Pressure

When: Sat., Sept. 30, 3 p.m. and Sun., Oct. 1, 3 p.m. 2017

Fans and practitioners of graffiti and graffiti-inspired artwork will once again converge on The Paintyard (a longtime hub for local aerosol artists and the culture that surrounds them) for Contents Under Pressure (CUP), a two-day celebration that this year follows a theme of “Ancient Civilizations.” Part-showcase, part-competition, part-party, the fest will feature live work and work on display from a bevy of local and national artists, including Amber Kurosky, John Michael Gill, Skye Amber Sweet and Nik Soupé. CUP will also include a slew of vendors, food, b-boy battles and live music from roots/funk crew Deltaphonic, CZR WVE, several DJs and more. A Saytown tradition, CUP provides attendees an intimate and raw look at a wide variety of art at various stages of the creative process and artists in a various phases of development.
