OR, Portland: July 28, 2012: Grand opening - The Wallz Gallery

The Wallz will open (July 28th 2012) 7-10PM with the goal of quickly becoming the premier Northwest destination for modern and urban art. This 5,000 -square-foot, establishment will soon be one of the best venues in the area to view and purchase work from your favorite street, graphic, and gallery artists.

When they realized they shared an interest in shedding light on and advancing the urban arts movement, cofounders Michael “Mad One” Neely II and Chris “Voxx Romana” Price decided to open The Wallz teaming up with the Lumberyard crew. Price brings many years of gallery and design experience to the venture, while Neely’s extensive knowledge of the public art scene includes working with some of the most progressive artists out there.

The Wallz aims to elevate street art to the level of fine art and design, and to that end we will be bringing you not only sophisticated newcomers, but also the biggest and best names in the field.

This will be a nationwide and local group exhibit with the current walls painted by local artists in an array of mediums.
