View Details


The 17th Annual Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach festival, underwritten by  The Alys Foundation, will be held May 17-18, 2024.

The New Urbanist community of Alys Beach, located along the Northwest Florida coastline and Scenic Highway 30A, provides the setting for Digital Graffiti – an organic, open-air gallery for original artworks projected against the elegant white walls of Alys Beach. As the architecture of Alys Beach provides large-scale blank canvases for the collection, varied in height and articulation, the show explores this interplay between art and architecture for artist, technician, curator, and audience. This engagement is transformative, creating an immersive and interactive art projection experience that is entirely unique to the Digital Graffiti festival, named as one of the top “24 Unconventional Art Destinations Around the World” by National Geographic.

Artists, designers, photographers, and architects are invited to submit their artwork for the juried show, to be projected under the night sky, the latest in design, animation and projection technologies illuminating the pedestrian pathways, pocket parks, and courtyards of Alys Beach. The festival features two glowing evenings of innovation and inspiration, with artists from around the world exhibiting works of projection mapping, generative art, experimental short films, and animation, as well as sound, motion, and light-responsive installations.

Digital Graffiti is a juried show of original works of digital projection art. The 2024 awards include Best of Show ($5,000 prize), Curator’s Choice ($2,000 prize) and three Special Recognition honors (at $1,000 prize each), selected by the festival’s curator, John Colette, and esteemed panel of judges. The Alys Foundation has donated more than $300,000 in awards and artist stipends over the past 16 years, all to further digital work in the public realm.
