Street art – also known as graffiti art – is often done under cover of night. But on a sunny, hot, and humid mid-summer afternoon in Galesburg it was done during the light of day in a small downtown plaza.
A new event from the Galesburg Civic Art Center aims to liven up an area of the city that is neglected. The organization will host its first ever street art contest Saturday, July 18 in the alley behind the art center. The event is being called “Battle for the Alley.”
