For the last two years, Mozarts Plads has been the site of Plads Til Graffiti, a dynamic outdoor graffiti jam that mixed the best hometown talent with some great international artists. This year, Plads Til Graffiti has expanded it’s repetoire, joined forces with partners from the U.S., and has evolved into what will be a full fledged hip hop event with all the elements of Hip Hop included, namely, The BBoy BBQ.
Here are a few photos from Plads Til Graffiti in 2010 and 2009. For those singularly creative summer days, Mozarts Plads became an outdoor graffiti gallery, with work from a variety of artists on display.
We will continue to update this post and the corresponding page as the event draws closer. Stay tuned for details on the MC, DJ, BBoy, and Graffiti artist lineup, as well as featured artist interviews, photos, and videos coming soon!
