“The Street Art Project” by Google
A new and ambitious project under the Google name, follow us and find out more.
The Google Cultural Institute – the cultural arm of the Mountain View group, has launched this new project: The Street Art Project.
An enormous digital archive created with more than 5,000 images taken from walls, buildings and all sorts of surfaces from all over the world.
An incredible idea to protect works of art which all too often are mistreated or even ignored.
This huge archive aims to gather together different forms of street art, ranging from large murals to much smaller works and including spray paint wall art, installations of a political nature and windows covered with stickers, all using the Street View video cameras. An immense task to celebrate and promote numerous artists who have received no official recognition but who, with their work, make cities and towns much more attractive places to live in.
The best thing is that this archive is constantly evolving and everyone is free to contribute and enrich it.
It’s easy, simply take a photo of the work of art which you think deserves recognition, post it to twitter adding the hashtag #streetartproject.
What can we say? A truly amazing initiative.
Here are some of the works already in the archive.
