“Priority Made” is a group art show of work done on or relating to the free Label 228 USPS Postal Sticker popularized through use by graffiti artists. The show will include graff stickers, art stickers, a timeline of the different blank versions of the 228 sticker, and non-sticker pieces inspired by or paying tribute to the 228 sticker. “Priority Made” explores the sticker as a catalyst and universal canvas from which anything can be “made” and the wide variety of work that has been inspired by or executed on this humble adhesive label.
The Boston graffiti scene will be represented by local legends like Tense, Imagine876, Deme5, Soems, Take1, Rob Stull, Omega Rocks, and Hops. Youth from East Boston and students from Madison Park High School in Roxbury will show alongside local talent, along with over 100 artists from all around the US, Canada, and even the UK, including regional heavyweights like Jayel 228 (NY) and Kever and Icky (FL).
The deadline for submissions is now CLOSED. We will see you at the opening.
Show Opens: 1/5/19-10pm
Show Closes: 2/9/19-10pm
Gallery Hours: Saturdays and Sundays form 12-6pm
