RedCan is rising once again. With interest in Indian Countrys
only invitational graffiti jam hotter than ever, CRYPs third
annual RedCan event will take place from June 29 to July 1 at CRYPs
Waniyetu Wowapi (Winter Count) Art Park and throughout the city
of Eagle Butte.
What Is a Graffiti Jam?
Graffiti jams were designed to introduce graffiti as an art form,
bringing together people who exemplify the contemporary graffiti
art movement and how it has evolved since its inception a half century
ago. In the case of RedCan, not only are artists showcasing a global
movement, its relevance and how to be part of it, theyre connecting
the graffiti world with the indigenous one, allowing Lakota artists
to infuse graffiti with their own culture, identities and stories.
RedCan provides meaningful, lasting inspiration to our young
people, who seek to explore their identities, find their own unique
voices, and express themselves in a positive, healthy way. It also
offers offers an unprecedented opportunity for the Cheyenne River
community to experience what has become the largest art movement
in the history of humankind.
