A Museum Let Street Artists Do Whatever They Want On Its Walls. Here’s The Result

Street artists began painting on the walls of the Long Beach Museum of Art on June 26th of this year. The project, titled “Vitality and Verve: Transforming the Urban Landscape,” will feature a select group of artists that are either exploring urban art outside of the studio, or are thinking about taking up the studio instead of the street.

“Most of the works in this exhibition will be created on our gallery walls using both traditional and non-traditional art media ,” explains Ron Nelson, Executive Director of the Long Beach Museum of Art. “Once the exhibition ends, the walls will be repainted and prepared for the next exhibition. Therefore, it is important for art enthusiasts to see this amazing exhibition before it closes.”

The exhibit will run through September 27, 2015.

It would be really cool to hire one of these artists to do a wall in ur house. It would be one of a kind and so so cool.

I would rather see this art at a Museum then some of the famous old school paintings. I love the Butterfly

Then go to local galleries instead of museums. You are more likely to find exhibitions of local and experimental artists that way. You may even discover and up and coming artist!
