Graffiti has always been considered revolutionary, and throughout history any revolution at first was considered a crime. Graffiti has been used by groups and individuals who have felt oppressed or suppressed and needed an outlet to express themselves, so they write on the walls. Mobile Fashion Week started as a revolution, an outlet for Gulf Coast/Southern Designers to express themselves without having to travel or move to towns that could never be considered home. Enjoy our Graffiti, enjoy our Crime, enjoy our Fashion, enjoy our Revolution.

The Small Room exhibition artists include:Justin Tullie (Designer), Tony Davis (Designer), and Jordan Atchison (Artist). Meet the artists on ArtWalk night, September 8, from 6 - 9 PM. The show will be available to see from 9 AM - 5 PM on weekdays throughout the month of September.

The Azalea City Art Quilters, established 2004, are members of the Azalea City Quilters Guild, Inc. Using innovative techniques and materials, their art quilts are inspired by their own experiences, imagery and ideas rather than traditional patterns. The Art Quilters enjoy doing both individual and group projects, expanding the viewer's concept of what a quilt is or can be. Their motto: nO RuLeS.

The group's newest group project, Under the Sea, has made its premier at MAC. Each quilter ice-dyed the background fabric, then created her vision of what was underwater.
