The tour will be curated & hosted by Urban Artworks, & will include some of the artists themselves, as they explain their inspiration behind their work & the processes involved in producing large outdoor works of art.
Tickets are limited to 50 guests & will be $25 each, available athttp://urbanartride.eventbrite.com, includes comp coffee at check-in, the tour itself, & comp beers at afterparty, all proceeds from ticket sales to Urban Artworks
