Fall 2018

photo journal

The Dripped On The Road fall 2018 Program was another epic trip. The program brought along artists McMonster (Portland, OR) and Trasher (Mexico City, MX) on a month long residency journey. 

The program went to Pittsburgh, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Columbus, Washington DC, and NYC. The residency ended with a great exhibition in the Lower East Side of New York City, showcasing all the work that was created on the road, including illustrations, paintings and installations. 

 

 

PITTSBURGH, PA

October 1st-6th

DOTR's first stop in the 2018 fall program was beautiful Pittsburgh, PA. On the way to Pittsburgh, the crew stopped at Bald Eagle State Park and spent their first night there getting to know each other and making great fires. Along for the ride on this part of the trip was their dear friend Rachel who was writing a story about the program for Fodors Travel Magazine.

The crew was able to stay in a beautiful downtown hotel, and paint the Warrington Beer building in the Allentown part of the city. Bringing all of their creative minds together, the crew spent the next 4-5 days painting this 35x160 ft wall. Many community members came out to watch the wall get painted, and the mural culminated in a community party with music and food vendors.

TYGART STATE PARK, WV

October 7th-8th

Stop 2, was the amazing Tygart State Park in West Virginia. The crew camped here for a night while driving down to the Talking Walls Mural Festival in Charlotte. While exploring through the woods, they found abandoned pontoon boats and tractors and had a great photo shoot. 

The spiders were also abundant.

CHARLOTTE, NC

October 9th-13th

Charlotte NC for the Talking Walls Festival!! 

This was one of the programs favorite stops. The crew camped out in the back of a notorious screen printing shop called Ink Floyd. The employees of Ink Floyd were some of the best people! They came out everyday with beers and food and treated the crew with amazing southern hospitality. Here, the crew split up and painted a separate wall each.

Denton Burrows painted Mackelburg Valve, Ramiro Davaro-Comas painted the famous drag bar Chasers. 

Trasher painted the outside wall of Ink Floyd, and Mc Monster painted an epic alley downtown. 

This was one of the best stops the crew has ever done!! Thank you to everyone who made this stop possible!!

Kentucky

October 14th-15th

Camping, camping, camping - this is what this trip is all about! 

The program likes to stop in different parks while traveling from city to city, and this stop was unbelievable. 

Denton rented a pontoon boat and brought everyone on a beautiful lake journey, stopping in different islands to explore and take photos. 

This was one of the most magical experiences, as the lake was crystal clear with no one else on it. 

Amazing.

Cincinnati, OH

October16th-19th

Cincinnati was a trip!

The crew was welcomed by the local great artist and DOTR collaborator Jennifer Ustick. Jennifer had painted a variety of large public works in the downtown of Cincinnati, and she set up the crew with a place to stay and paint while in town. The crew stayed in a parking lot that belonged to the owner of a local arts collective, and at night they would go and check out this epic building.

Jennifer also connected the crew with a local brewery called 3 Points. 3 Points invited DOTR to paint a mural on the side of their brewery, and then they brewed a beer based on the image that the crew created. A true collaborative experience.

Additionally, Cincinatti was the home to many of the writers in the T.A crew, so Ratchi NYC, Cram and Exit all painted a great alleyway in the city.

COLUMBUS, OH

October19th-22nd

Columbus Ohio brought the crew a very special wall to collaborate on. DOTR was invited to paint a wall at the local Barcade called Old North Arcade. The bar wanted an 80's themed mural, so the crew decided to paint The Simpsons, The shark from Jaws, Jason from the Friday the 13th movies and Robocop. A true collaborative epic mural. In between painting sessions, the group would play video games and drink beer inside.

The program was parked in the parking lot of a local development initiative called Graviky projects. Here, they held a artist talk for the local community as well as painted a very geometrically designed mural. In the evenings, the group would frequent the local restaurant called "The Spaghetti Warehouse", which to say the least, was a true hotspot and highly recommended.

Washington D.C.

October23rd-28th

Washington DC brought the heat!

The program stayed in a parking lot on the corner of one of the busiest intersection in the city, Rhode Island and 6th NW. Its  a wild experience to stay in a parking lot, as you are aware of every noise and movement that passes your area....but the crew was sued to this and got to paint immediately.

The hosts in D.C owned this giant parking lot, and it would soon be home to the "Electric Kool Aid" bar. Denton and McMonster collaborated on the large main wall of the lot, while Ramiro and Ratchi NYC painted the bus that was to serve as the food truck when the location opened. Additionally, Trasher painted the entire facade of a building in the lot with a beautiful blue tiger and flowers.

On top of all the painting and sleeping in parking lots, the group was able to visit the local monuments and museums. D.C. was a treat to be able to bring someone from Mexico to the capital, and to show them all fo the locations and monuments they have only seen in movies. Both Trasher and McMonster truly loved the Washington DC experience!

New York, NY

October 29th-November 3rd

NYC was the last stop for the crew on this trip. During the program, all of the artists involved including the directors and videographer created work to show at the end of the program. Dripped On the Road partnered with a local gallery to exhibit the work created. Needless to say, the residents very much enjoyed showing their artwork in NYC for the first time, and the days spent in NYC was a enriching and great experience for the residents.
