“Post All Bills” is an exhibition dedicated to public art that is made for the street — stenciling, tagging, wheatpasting, street posters, yarn bombing, sticker art, and mural painting. Expect to see work inside and outside the gallery in this unique exhibition of Indiana-based artists who use the street art movement’s aesthetic and principles in their artistic practice.

Street art and graffiti are essentially about claiming public space as a place for artistic expression. Often controversial, over the last 50 years this movement has been embraced by the art world, and is often appropriated by the commercial design and advertising fields. The art in “Post All Bills” has many influences, including popular culture, ancient culture, language, skateboarding and hip hop.
