Alys Beach is getting ready to host the 16th Annual Digital Graffiti Festival, May 19-20, 2023. The premier projection art festival features interactive installations of globally recognized artists with the iconic Alys Beach architecture as the canvas.
The Scenic 30A community of Alys Beach, located along the northwest Florida coastline, provides the environment for the Digital Graffiti festival, the open-air, organic gallery for the projections of these original artworks. Staged against the elegant white walls of Alys Beach, Digital Graffiti provides a large-scale blank canvas for artists to explore the visual intersection of art and architecture. The engagement between the art, architecture, and audience 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.

The Alys Foundation has donated more than $350,000 in awards and artist stipends over the past 15 years, all to further digital work in the public realm.
