“Save 5 POINTZ” celebrates the worldʼs premiere “Graffiti Mecca”
Javanna Productions M.O.V.E. presents “Save 5 Pointz” at 5 Pointz Aerosol Art Center.
November 22nd and December 17th
“Save 5 Pointz” presented by Javanna Productions M.O.V.E. is dance piece celebrating the worldʼs premiere “graffiti Mecca,” where aerosol artists from around the globe paint colorful pieces on the walls of a 200,000-square-foot factory building. The “Save 5 Pointz” piece has a mission to recognize and bring attention to the importance of this outstanding structure of 5 Pointz Aerosol Art Center, an outdoor art exhibit space in Long Island City, New York.
The name 5 Pointz signifies the five boroughs coming together as one but, because of its reputation as an epicenter of the graffiti scene, the industrial complex has actually united aerosol artists from across the world. Legendary writers from Canada, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Japan, Brazil, and all over the United States have painted on the building walls.
Javanna Productions (JP) is a non profit 501c3 organization that raises funds and awareness for rising domestic and international social issues via the arts. The members of JP may not be able to stop the demolition of this aerosol epicenter but they are MOVING on November 22nd and December 17th to give thanks and pay their respects to this gorgeous piece of work and the artists that have participated in making it what it is today.

December 17th at 3:30- 6:00 P.M
At 5 Pointz Aerosol Art Center,
