Stick ‘Em Up!
A Fundraiser to Support Aurora Public Programs
Filmmaker Alex Luster in attendance

Location:  River Oaks Theater, 2009 West Gray Street
$10 Non-Members, Aurora Members Free with RSVP

Stick ‘Em Up! is a captivating film that explores the little-known world of wheat pasting, an inner-city art form that’s as provocative as it is misunderstood. Documentary filmmaker Alex Luster delves into the minds and motivations behind some of Houston's most notorious guerilla street artists, capturing the lifespan of their art... conception, creation, placement and – ultimately – removal by the city's abatement enforcement.  With commentary by legendary street artists and top local law enforcement officials, Stick ’Em Up! is a gritty, street-smart documentary that reveals the secret truth behind the prolific images you see every day – in cities all across the nation. Interviews include artists Give Up, Shepard Fairey, DUAL, Eyesore, Cutthroat and Bomit.

Alex Luster is a documentary filmmaker & television producer living in Houston, Texas. His passion for being behind the camera came at an early age. It led to his first job in broadcast TV at the age of 14. His appreciation for urban art has culminated in the documenting of a rising inner city art form. Luster was awarded the prestigious Promax Silver Muse Award in addition to two Lone Star Emmy Awards.

This screening will raise funds to support the public programs hosted by Aurora Picture Show.  Please note that both screenings are SOLD OUT.  We will have a wait list on the night of the event to sell seats if there are any no-shows, but we can not guarantee admission via wait list.
