July 26: Calligraffiti

PLATFORMS, along with O1ARTS, are hosting “Calligraffiti.”

Calligraffiti is a type of art that uses calligraphy, typography and graffiti to extend an artistic message. In other words, Calligraffiti uses a word or group of words to form a piece of art.

Street artists Josh Pohlman and Jeremy Little were provided with poetry about life in Ogden, and then transformed the words of the poems into calligraffiti.

On July 26, the pieces will be displayed at PLATFORMS, a non-profit organization located on 25th Street.

Look up @ogdenfirst on Instagram to see examples of the art or check out CalliGraffiti on Facebook.
