When the New York Times Starts Reporting on Street Art

IMG_0930Over the past few days there have been a few articles in the New York Times on street art and I have to ask myself, "What does this portend for the art form?" Is this good - does it give street artists an opportunity to have their work more widely seen and appreciated? Or does this mainstream street art so much that it becomes commercialized, homogenized and uninteresting?

I hope for the best - that street artists are finally considered true artists (as I believe) and have their work appreciated and valued.

Here is one of the articles and the link:
