Paint supply budget for our All Elements of Hip Hop mural at Booker T Washington Center.
So here's the lowdown. Hip Hop Congress of Rockford has teamed up with the city and other area agencies to put on an All Elements of Hip Hop festival that incorporates all 4 elements of Hip Hop: Breaking, Graffiti, DJ'n and the M.C. The festival is set to include breaking battles, Dj battles, freestyle battles and a full scale on site production mural created during the festival. Two walls on the building of the YMCA facilities at the Booker T Washington center have been donated but there is currently not enough funds in the budget to cover the paint costs for the mural. Rockford Area Arts Council has donated some initial funds to get the ball rolling, but it will only cover about one eighth of what is needed. The mural is set to include prominent cultural icons from black and latino history, as well as key contributors to hip hop culture. Five of us local artists, all well versed with a spray can, are set to complete this mural on 9-22 during the festival. The space is pictured on this page and is about 15 feet high by 60 feet wide. I've got a good hook up on per can cost and the projected goal is to include the cost of paint, shipping, and the donation incentives. All the incentives would go out by end of October unless you're generous enough to donate into the largest bracket, then you will receive a custom created collaborative painting by all contributing artists. Your donation and support is appreciated with extreme gratitude from all of us involved in putting this festival together, and we look forward to meeting you if you can make it out on 9-22 to witness us creating a killer mural.
