Back in September, Alive featured graffiti-inspired artist Lance Johnson and his Streetlight Guild exhibition, "Post No Ills."

“You can see the history of the walls, and the texture of old graffiti covered by new,” said Johnson, who works with spray paint and paint markers to create richly textured pieces.

After the Streetlight Guild show, the McConnell Arts Center of Worthington hosted a new iteration of "Post No Ills," and a recently released short film documents his exhibition preparations and his collaborations with other local artists, including poet, cultural critic and Alive columnist Scott Woods, dancer Micaela Gonzalez, artist Celeste Malvar-Stewart, the Mark Lomax Trio and artist Bryan Christopher Moss, who interviews Johnson in the video.
