Dallas – Several hundred attendees are expected to get their first look at The Walls of Pleasant Grove at the upcoming Styles Fest, which will include live painting by muralists, music by DJ EZ Eddie D, vendors, and activities for the entire family. There is no cost to attend the event.

The first annual Styles Fest will take place over the course of three days and will feature a mash-up of over fifteen artists including pioneers of the aerosol art movement such as PART ONE, BIO & NICE, along with a few select hometown favorites.

For more than a decade, Dallas native, Khadafy Branch aka DAP ONE, has been curating The Walls at Pleasant Grove, inviting artists from across the globe to share their unique painting styles in this little-known cultural enclave in southeast Dallas.

The Walls of Pleasant Grove has the strong support of District 5 Council Member Jaime Resendez, who has worked with community leaders, the Office of Arts and Culture and Dallas Water Utilities to ensure The Walls receive recognition and support from the city. “This venue is more than an outdoor art gallery, it represents the heart and essence of our community,” said Resendez.

With StylesFest 2022, The Walls at Pleasant Grove promises to become one of the largest outdoor galleries in the country!
