Painting the house…TerraCycle style
Painting the outside of a house can be a real chore – a hot, sticky, messy chore. But it’s not so bad when you have hundreds of people to help.
Our friends at TerraCycle are hosting the 8th annual Jersey Fresh Jam this weekend at their “house.” Hundreds of aerosol artists will descend upon the Trenton, NJ property to show off their skills with a spray can. TerraCycle gives them free reign to paint their art (tastefully, of course!), which will remain on the outside walls of TerraCycle’s headquarters until next summer.
This one-day event offers the Trenton area’s urban artists a constructive outlet to express themselves while showcasing the more positive side to graffiti art. As this kind of event is becoming more common, often legal graffiti art is showcased in galleries across the country.
And have no fear: the artists use paint that is eco-friendly with low VOC levels. We wouldn’t expect anything less, guys and gals!
During the day, various local and regional emcees, bands and DJs will provide a soundtrack of sorts to the day, and the public is invited to see how these artists work (for free!). Malt-O-Meal is also providing breakfast for everyone that morning to keep them fueled and happy. And, there’s even an official after-party hosted by Jersey Fresh Jam. What’s not to love?
Check out the video below from last year’s Jam at TerraCycle. If you’re in the area this Saturday, August 11, we invite you to see what it’s all about in person. If you can’t make it out to Jersey, we’ll post this year’s video here after the event.
