With pop-up spaces becoming increasingly popular, the city and empty spaces become large scale backdrops for passionate artists to share their work with the world.
ExhibitBE is a community-centered celebration of street art’s transformative energy that highlights the opportunity for collective empowerment through creative expression that urban blight presents. ExhibitBE demonstrates artists’ ability to repurpose unsightly space to engage their communities in necessary conversations on housing, blight, and accountability. Powered by a brilliant group of volunteer artists and organizers, ExhibitBE is the largest single-site street art exhibit in the American South. Witness what happens when community + space + art unite to redefine blight and to create alchemy.
