Preserve the Kulture

August 16 @ 8:00 am - August 17 @ 5:00 pm

Preserve the Kulture Jam 24 is a FREE two-day celebration of hip-hop culture at APEX Art & Culture Center, Friday and Saturday, Aug. 16-17.

The event begins with a special movie screening of Prophets, Teachers and Kings, an -award winning film documenting the UIT crew, graffiti’s last underground crew out of Los Angeles. Dogtown Collection’s collector John Carswell and UTI OGs will answer questions about the making of the movie and LA’s graffiti culture. AMGRAF will be open for tours with Baby G Carswell.

The fun continues on Friday night with a Paint Battle, Teen Mural Kickoff, DJs, Food Truck and Beer Garden. Come and enjoy watching some of graffiti’s top national and regional artists take to their canvases as they battle to be the best of their peers.

Saturday’s activities include a lowrider car show, DJs, break dancers, another paint battle, AMGRAF museum tours, the teen mural project and Saturday Night concert with Herb -N- Life, a reggae band that hails from Arizona. *There will be a $10 cover to enter the event space for the Saturday night show beginning at 8 p.m. The beer garden and food truck will be open throughout the event.

Supported by Snohomish County and Everett LTAC grants, this community event is partnering with The Schack Art Center and their weekend Fresh Paint event. Paint, paint and more paint. Watching graffiti artists create their works of art using only aerosol paint doesn’t get much fresher.​

The event is all-ages and free.
