The officials at the Long Beach Museum of Art came up with a strange idea, at least strange it would have seemed to worlds Art fraternity. They decided to give their walls to a group of contemporary street artists for a fortnight. Yes a group of street artists had walls of Long Beach Museum of Art to create their magic for a project titled “Vitality and Verve.” The amazing result is an amalgamation of street art, graffiti, traditional canvas paintings and mixed media installations. The Exhibitions in on till September 27, 2015. Look at the artwork below and you will be mesmerised.
It’s quite saddening to know that once the exhibition is over these walls will be painted again in White. But these street artists do not mind that as the essence of street art is that it will eventually be painted over and you have to have a glance till the time its is there. They might be okay with this art being destroyed but it gives us a heavy heart for sure.
Have you ever created clicked or seen a piece of street art. Do share it with us.
