Watch local street artists compete to create the most exciting mural while a vibrant throng of onlookers cheers them on. You can join this lively milieu when Secret Walls’ 35-city “Support Your Local Artist” tour stops in LA on August 14.

At this community-minded art celebration, DJs spin while artists are given spray paint, paint brushes, paint rollers, and markers. The clock strikes and the artists have 90 minutes to create a new mural. A group of judges and a decibel meter help determine the winner.

Confirmed art luminaries appearing in select cities include Greg Mike, pop surrealist Allison Bamcat, Ally Grimm, Matt Gondek, Sentrock, Woes, The Obanoth, and LAmour Supreme, along with musical guests Boom Bap Kids and Soulection DJs.

Secret Walls began in London in 2006. Now based in Los Angeles, Secret Walls continually promotes a sense of community while uniting art lovers with working artists.

The “Support Your Local Artist” tour will appear at The Glass House in Pomona on Sunday, August 14 at 7:30 p.m. General admission tickets are $25 and can be purchased here.
