Writers from DF and ATT crews have converged this Memorial Day weekend in Kansas City from around the country for their semi-annual reunion, drawing professional graffiti artists from other crews to town … Thursday and Friday, they painted at Grinder's / Crossroads KC music venue (19th and Locust, south roof and west side … and bus), and Vulcan and Apex (NY / San Francisco) will be completing the south-facing rooftop mural over the weekend.

Today, James Elementary School in Historic Northeast offers up its lovely retaining wall once again for an all-out set of great DF/ATT pieces and characters, with music by Hip Hop Academy, all starting at 1 p.m.  Watch layers of color emerge and converge, and try to read what you see as the artists work … get blackbooks signed and interview and photograph to your heart's content. (See pics from the August 2007 event at the school.)

Additional sites in Kansas City, Kansas, are also hosting guest painters (900-1100-blocks of Southwest Boulevard … on Lincoln near Strasser True Value Hardware and at 3 Axis fabrication company).
