Alys Beach Announces Ticket Sales For The Seventh Annual Digital Graffiti Festival

The world's first outdoor projection art festival expands to three nights June 5-7, 2014

ALYS BEACH, Fla., March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tickets for the Seventh Annual Digital Graffiti Festival, Alys Beach's signature annual event, to be held June 5–7, 2014 will be placed on sale on Monday, March 24, 2014.

During what has become a weekend extravaganza event, the community of Alys Beach, located on Scenic Highway 30A on the Gulf of Mexico in Northwest Florida, opens its doors, courtyards, and pedestrian paths to groundbreaking digital artists from around the globe. At this innovative, one-of-a-kind live art exhibit, the iconic white walls of Alys Beach are transformed into "blank canvas" screens onto which various forms of newly created digital art is projected.

For 2014, the world's first outdoor projection art festival has expanded, adding a new offering on Thursday night — an exclusive behind-the-scenes, informative tour lead by DG 2014 Curator Brett Phares beginning at 8 p.m. Friday evening includes activities and a meet-and-greet gallery stroll featuring some of digital artist finalists, who will be on hand to answer questions and discuss their work on display. The excitement continues on Saturday with the live festival exhibit lighting up Alys Beach beginning at 8:30 p.m. and ending with the must-not-miss poolside party of the season at Caliza Pool, featuring music and video mixing by DJs and VJs, light bites and cash bars.

All access weekend passes are available for $200 per person and include admission to the event on all three days, an official Digital Graffiti event t-shirt and Tervis tumbler. Tickets for Friday night are $50 per person for adults and $20 for children (12 and under). Tickets for Saturday are $75 (for adults and children). VIP patron tickets are $100 and include an official Digital Graffiti t-shirt and a refillable Tervis tumbler. Proceeds to benefit The Alys Foundation, which supports select local charities.

Tickets are limited; pre-purchased tickets are highly encouraged. Tickets will be available for purchase online beginning March 24, 2014 at digitalgraffiti.com and in person at the Alys Beach Bike Shop, The Alys Shoppe and Fonville Press in Alys Beach. Digital Graffiti will be presented rain or shine.

Come for the festival and enjoy all South Walton has to offer all along Scenic Highway 30A. Luxurious multi-bedroom homes are available for vacation rental in Alys Beach. For details and rates visit alysbeach.com or call toll-free to 1(866) 732-9276.

Staging Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach gives artists a large-scale canvas to explore the intersections of art and architecture, while creating entirely new art forms. Once darkness falls on the weekend, the town will be set aglow as artists compete for  $10,000 in cash prizes. A panel of judges will select five award winners including Best of Show; Best in Florida; Curator's Choice; and three Honorable Mentions.

In just a few short years Digital Graffiti has become irrevocably linked to Alys Beach. "Watching our beautiful, stark, white washed walls and roofs become completely transformed by the colorful and evocative swirling pieces of digital art is truly an inspiring experience, says town architect Marieanne Khoury-Vogt. "The projected vivid images that mold and melt against the backdrop of our sculptural architecture are fascinating to observe."

Digital Graffiti 2014 is made possible with generous support from Visit South Walton, In Focus and 30A.com

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...
