Mobile Graffiti Yard

The Mobile Graffiti Yard is a modular wall system that can be easily constructed at various locations to create a ‘pop-up’ Graffiti Yard and/or a large scale canvas for live painting, murals, and performing arts exhibitions. These 4′ x 8′ steel framed panels fit together to create an infinitely expandable wall. The project launched in 2018 as a pop-up art exhibition and educational tool.  The Mobile Graffiti Yard has the ability to expand within its original location, or grow into multiple exhibits running simultaneously. The project may also transition into a permanent, interactive art installation. The long term goal will be to have lots of legal graffiti venues in the future.  The Mobile Graffiti Yard is an opportunity help us in our mission to provide safe, legal venues for underserved communities to create, share, and enjoy graffiti art.



Mobile Graffiti Yard featured at Machine Art Studio’s Big Postal Show 2. The studio created a giant replica of the discontinued labels referred to by artists as “Blue Tops”. Attendees were invited to sign the interactive exhibit during this free event.
