Gallery-style art installations, live graffiti exhibitions, and a skate park?! The MBP Urban Arts Fest 2009 is a one-day-only social gathering, presented by Mark Batty Publisher and benefiting Art for Progress, to showcase the thriving urban community at its best. Check out special appearances by photojournalist Martha Cooper (author of Going Postal), Chris Stain, Motomichi Nakamura, DJ Statik Selektah, and DJ Jason Mizell (son of Jam Master Jay), among others, as well as the arts and crafts area, where you’ll be able to create your own canvas laptop case and design tote bags out of recycled materials. Then, starting at 8 p.m. is a dance party with DJs and free beer. How could you refuse?
