Organized, city-approved graffiti creation? I know, it sounds odd. But it’s happening – the city of Guelph is seeking artists to participate in a graffiti festival in late September. Here is the message we got from them:

Downtown Guelph is looking for street artists to participate in a Graffiti Festival on Saturday September 29th. You will need to contact us directly to reserve a space (8′ x 4′ blank canvas will be provided). Email events@downtownguelph.com to get involved.

Okay, it may not be as “street”, but this could be a cool thing.

Here’s another cool thing.
