Street art is seemingly everywhere these days. Whether it's in the form of graffiti, stickers, posters or installations, there is often a controversy associated with it. These two films showcase different types of street art, the artists behind them and the people that oppose this kind of art.

Stick 'Em Up!, directed by Houstonian Alex Luster, delves into the mind and motivations behind some of Houston's most notorious guerilla street artists, capturing the lifespan of their work, from conception, creation, placement and — ultimately — the removal by the city's abatement enforcement.

Vigilante Vigilante chronicles a new breed of crime-fighters that now stalks the urban landscape: The anti-graffiti vigilantes who are dedicated to rid their neighborhoods and cities of street art, stickers, tags and posters. Yet in their relentless attempt to stamp out graffiti, they have turned to illegally and destructively painting other people's property.

In addition to screening the two films, there will be a pop-up gallery featuring prints for sale by two of the artists featured in Stick 'Em Up!, Give Up and DUAL.
