Arts Council creates sticky situation

It’s the World’s First Traveling Gum Wall!

You might call it Pointillism, or you might say it’s disgusting. No matter what you say, on June 11th the Yellow Springs Arts Council and the jafagirls (“Just Another Flippin’ Artist”) are unveiling the world’s first Traveling Gum Wall. This interactive art project is a fund-raiser for the YS Arts Council. It will include thousands of participants in the creating of a graffiti gem. Each participant will carefully place their freshly chewed gum on the gum wall, and then sign the back of the wall to make a permanent historical record of all contributing artists. The gum, in a dazzling display of glorious colors and viscosity will be available for purchase from the YS Arts Council for a piddling sum. Those with strong jaws and a vision of something they want to create can purchase our gum in packs or even multipacks! After completion, the Traveling Gum Wall will be celebrated at the glitzy, ditzy Gum Ball. Costumes made of gum wrappers are optional. The Traveling Gum Wall will pop up at events throughout the year. Don’t miss your chance to chew for art’s sake. Be a part of creating gum art history!
