INFO: Scarce Elementz returns in 2016 to host its first, exclusive outdoor crew gallery featuring custom canvases, skate decks and countless other objects adorned with their signature artwork, available for viewing and purchase.

Oct 5th-7th will not only encompass the open air gallery showing, but ALSO will provide for designated interactive and instructional time periods in each of the three days, with the mural artists. This will enable the general public, during specified time slots, to learn from the artists about spray paint mural work, up close and personal and to apply their learning in real time, to take some ownership in the creation of the new 180ft mural. Attendees arriving in the designated times, and showing interest in the interactive aspect of this affair should be prepared to get down and dirty with paint on hands. DRESS ACCORDINGLY!

May 2015 - We recently wrapped up our first Artist Residency in conjunction with the Turnaround Arts program with Des Moines Public Schools, beginning with Harding Middle School in Des Moines, IA.  The coordinating crew members for this affair included LETER91 & ASPHATE, and involved consultation with, instruction to, and assistance from the student body of three 8th grade Civics classes. Peace and thanks, to all the students who helped rock out a dope mural, and the Artist Integrationist/ Teacher who brought the idea of Scarce Elementz working with the kids, to light, Cassie Kendzora.  Check out the MURAL page for the full spread.
