Cincinnati native Leon Reid IV returns to talk about his exploits as a noted NYC-based graffiti artist at Feralmade Gallery. Inspired by his mid-’90s excursions to Scribble Jam, Leon (also known by his street names VERBS and Darius Jones) moved to Brooklyn where he used his interests in advert manipulation and graffiti writing to create functioning street installations. Confused? Leon will shed light on his crafty, sometimes illicit methods during a stop in which he will present more than 150 images of his work. He’ll also discuss new novel, The Adventures of Darius and Downey, which draws heavily from his experiences as a graffiti artist. 7 p.m. Free. Get details and find nearby bars and restaurants here.
