CRYP RedCan graffiti jam kicks off on Wednesday



RedCan is no longer rising. It’s finally here. After months of fundraising, planning and de­velopment, the Cheyenne River Youth Project will officially kick off its first-ever RedCan graffiti jam on Wednesday, July 8 at the CRYP campus on East Lincoln Street in Eagle Butte.

The revolutionary arts event is scheduled for July 8-10 in Eagle Butte on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation. From there, artists will head west for a second RedCan event in Rapid City’s Art Alley on July 11. Headline artists include East Foster from Denver, Kazilla from Miami, Meme from southern California, Tyler “Sia­mese” Read from Rapid City, and Peyton Scott Russell (pictured here), Biafra Inc. and Wundr from Minnesota’s Twin Cities. Also on hand will be a variety of native and non-native artists, hip-hop groups, native drum groups and native dancers.

The majority of the RedCan events will take place at CR­YP’s Waniyetu Wowapi (“Winter Count”) Art Park and the Cokata Wiconi (“Center of Life”) teen center, which also is home to CRYP’s acclaimed farm-to-table Keya (“Turtle”) Cafe. Participat­ing artists will be working in the art park and at select sites throughout the Eagle Butte com­munity.
