PRHBTN is an annual celebration of art forms that have been criminalized, marginalized, and under-appreciated in the mainstream, featuring public murals alongside an exhibition of street art works in a space that complements the raw, powerful nature of the message and artistry of each piece. The sixth installment of PRHBTN will take place October 8 -15, 2106 at various locations around downtown Lexington, Kentucky.
PRHBTN brings together a regional community of seasoned art lovers and those new to the street art genre by showcasing international, national, regional, and local artists, musicians, and businesses intrinsic to urban culture. For the sixth annual PRHBTN we have gathered artists from all over the world to create new mural works around the city of Lexington, Kentucky. We are very proud to welcome this year’s artists who come to us from Charleston, New York, Detroit, the UK, and more.
Through sponsorships from local businesses and local citizens we have been able to fund amazing pieces of art in downtown Lexington. We are also able to hold a commission free art show which features local and regional artists who can show their work and keep 100% of art sales. In the past this has helped to connect local artists with local businesses and citizens throughout the year for commissioned artworks, murals, and signage.
In addition to the art show and mural works, PRHBTN also features local and national music acts at various locations in Lexington including Cosmic Charlie’s, the Distillery District Campus, and other spots around town.
