“We’re pleased to add an outstanding group of new artists from England, Egypt, Puerto Rico, California and New York. We are especially honored this year to have a wall mural by legendary New York artist Lee Quinones, one of the inventors of Wild Style. In addition, Crash who has participated in the project since its inception is creating a new entrance wall.
