Competing Street Art Exhibits

Does this spell the mainstreaming of street art...?

The Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Arts announced its plan for a 2011 street arts exhibit. “It’s going to be the first major museum survey of the history of graffiti and street art presented in the United States,” reports the Los Angeles Times.

516 ARTS in downtown Albuquerque is doing it first.

The downtown art space in collaboration with the ACLU-NM and other local art organizations will host STREET ARTS: A Celebration of Hip Hop Culture & Free Expression. The two month collaboration will begin in October and run through November.

The show will feature local, national and international artists of various mediums. The schedule consists of literary art events, mural projects, tours of street arts projects, panel discussions, a hip hop film festival and a spoken word festival.

For more information on the event, check out the full exhibit schedule.
