Tompkins County Public Library, Ironlak and Cap Matches Color are proud to announce Get-Up State 2015.

You are invited to join 50+ of the world's best graffiti artists hailing from overseas and 10 US States who will display their awesome talents in a live painting event over one incredible weekend, September 25, 26, and 27. Watch the murals develop during the weekend long celebration. Be inspired. Embrace creativity and art within our community.

Painting will start on the Cornell University Press Building at 770 Cascadilla Street, Ithaca, around 10 am on Friday September 25 and finish with a special dedication ceremony at 1 pm on Sunday September 27.  Names of special guests will be announced soon.

A group art show is planned for Saturday September 26 from 7 to 11 pm at Lot 10 on Cayuga Street. It is open to the public and will feature works of many of the participating artists providing a unique opportunity to purchase originals from your favorite artists. An after party will follow.
