Anti-Gravity Project: Mass Mural Festival


Derek Gores, a member of EGAD and a driving force of the Anti-Gravity Project and Hyland Mather, also known as "The Lost Object", an artist from the Netherlands whose work will be displayed on the Foosaner Art Museum, talk about the project.

Over the course of ten days, downtown Eau Gallie will be transformed into a whirlwind of artistic innovation on the Space Coast.


Imagine the streets of downtown Eau Gallie covered in murals. Local artists, community volunteers, and international muralists will be painting alongside each other. The air will be supercharged with creative energy. People meander back and forth, enjoying live music, art demonstrations, illustration battles, and so much more. That is what will happen during the Anti-Gravity Project - a mass mural festival aiming to connect local and professional artists, business owners, volunteers, and the community to celebrate a love of the arts.


The Anti-Gravity Project is brought to you by the Eau Gallie Arts District. It focuses on uniting the community and improving its Outdoor Museum with over 12 murals being painted over the course of the festival. Inspired by the Shark mural located in downtown Eau Gallie and its community value, draw on visitors, and those celebrating special moments in their lives, the Eau Gallie Arts District has decided to elevate its public spaces into something more. The festival celebrates the relationship between artists and the community.


  The Anti-Gravity Project features local artists such as Christopher Maslow, who is known for his work on the Florida Institute of Technology mural in Downtown Melbourne. Other local artists include Cody Monahan, Mark Gilliam, Ian Soden, and Eric Wood. Professional artist Douglas Hoekzema - also known as Hoxxoh - is also confirmed to appear. Hoxxoh has painted in several places, including Washington D.C.; Hollywood, FL; and his hometown of Miami, FL.  


The Anti-Gravity Project will start on November 24th and run until December 3rd. Locations of artists working on their murals and other events will be posted on the Anti-Gravity Project website. The opening ceremony will start at noon on Black Friday, and the closing ceremony will be from noon to 10PM on the 3rd with a day-long block party aptly titled Fusion Fest. The location is the Eau Gallie Arts District.


The festival is free and open to the public. Donations are appreciated.
