Living Walls Conference issues call for street artists

The Living Walls Conference will bring the thoughts and work of street artists from around the globe to Atlanta. The event is still months away - it gets going in August - but the organizers have issued a call for street artists to participate:

We are calling for street artists to submit posters with no constraint on quantity or size. Art work from an international selection of artists will be wheat pasted on various walls around the city of Atlanta. All posters will be thoroughly documented with all artists credited.

International participants already include the Peruvian artist Faber and Miso of Australia. Locals including Jason Kofke and Paper Twins are already on board as well. The conference will include a lecture series on August 13 at Georgia Tech and "an exhibition and Pecha Kucha style presentations" at Eyedrum the following night.

For a full list of participating artists, details about how to participate or submit your art, and more developments as the come, visit the organizer's website.
