Charleston's art scene extends beyond picture-adorned gallery walls. An upcoming October event will take it to the streets.
Apexer, a San Francisco muralist who has created colorful street art around the world, is heading to the East Coast to share his talent with the Holy City.
He'll be doing a live mural painting from 6 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 11 outside Hed Hi Media, 654 King St.
An exhibition called "Street Art in Charleston" also will be on display, featuring works by Charleston native Shepard Fairey, DFace, Cleon Peterson, Ben Eine, Jason Woodside, Stikki Peaches, Mad C, Tristian Eaton and others. A live painting and mural competition by local artist Jonathan Rypkema is planned.
Live music will be provided by Mummbls and The Black Olive.
Hed Hi Media has teamed up with PBR for the event, which will be providing free beers for those 21 and older.
