Google Gets Into Street Art Showcasing

IMG_9277In a move that is at once exciting and somewhat unnerving, Google announced that it is creating a Street Art Project where, with the permission of the artist and rights holders, would collect and curate street art from around the world. The project seeks to link visitors with online collections and exhibitions about the history, locations and artists of street art.

I say unnerving because while I applaud Google's initiative, I am concerned that the more street art is mainstreamed, the less edgy it will become. But maybe I am over reacting. I am thrilled that street art is finally being recognized as a bonafide art movement - one to be treasured and preserved. And ther is arguably no company better than Google to set the pace in showcasing it.

So bravo Google! And thank you.
