Join us for a screening of Above the Free Walls, with filmmaker Weiying Olivia Huang and opening remarks by Patricia D. Jehlen. Free and open to the public. 

Above the Free Walls is a feature-length documentary exploring the legal graffiti artistic movement along the Modica Way, in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  Featuring interviews with numerous graffiti artists, reflecting on the complexity and depth of their world, along with street arts, public arts, graffiti arts, personal in-depth interviews, and never-before-seen works to address this visual adventure. Developed a voice that spoke to a new generation of the legal graffiti world in public art.  In doing so, they changed their view of graffiti itself, seeing it essentially as an art form of ephemeral creations. 

This program is supported in part by a grant from Cambridge Arts, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
