Sloss Graffiti ontest

This came to the phillips collection yesterday:

In the heart of the City, at the base of a 125 year old iron furnace, on the sides of authentic steel rail containers.


is a call to entry for graffiti artists for 20 artists across the US to tag the rail yards of Sloss Furnaces, an amazing abandoned rail yard, coal plant, and iron furnace. It's in Birmingham, Alabama. Though the contest is heavily sponsored by energy drink people, the chance to create art there is worthwhile.

I was at Sloss a couple years ago with habitat. The structures there are huge and it's incredible Alabama's letting this happen.
