FAME Festival Pre-Coverage @ Hi Fructose

Remember those impulsive plane tickets to Italy I purchased a couple months ago? Well, the impetus for the irrationality was FAME Festival, an annual street art event that takes over the ancient ceramics town Grottaglie. Aside from overall dopeness, it seemed like a perfect opportunity to explore the connection between street art and place—because what better way is there to explore a subject than to travel and write about it?

So I’ve been not-so-secretly trying to weasel my way in to writing for arts and culture publications. I’ve managed to work my way on to Hi-Fructose’s blog, with some pre-coverage here. Be sure to check in for updates as the event draws nearer!

    See, my impetus to travel to Italy on a whim would be for pizza. I’m a food whore.

    Never heard of FAME, but sounds pretty kick ass. Just out of curiosity, did you see that documentary on Banksy?

      I did see the documentary. Thought it was kinda like “Walk the Line”—cool if you have an inherent interest in the subject, but otherwise would be totally boring.

    AMAZING street art. Am so psyched for you. Can’t wait to see the photos you bring back.
