MASH presents Street Art
Street Art is about passionate artists who want their work to be seen by a wide range of people rather than be confined to galleries and museums. So expect music, discussion, live painting and an in-depth study of the use of subversive messages, mimicking of advertising methods and the presentation of three-dimensional sculptures to the public. Films to be screened include:
