Vanity Fair and Cadillac will be unveiling a public murals project at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles on October 12th. The ‘Art in the Streets‘ website tied to the undertaking goes live today and features work from Shepard Fairey, Retna and Kenny Scharf. Those that want to catch a sneak preview can do so by picking up a copy of Vanity Fair’s November 2011 issue, which is on newsstands today.  The magazine will feature the long-awaited “Art in the Streets” portfolio with pictures by David LaChapelle.

You can also experience this innovative collaboration between the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and Cadillac by logging on to the Art in the Streets website. There you’ll be able to go behind the scenes with artists Retna, Kenny Scharf, and Shepard Fairey as they created their works for the “Art in the Streets” Murals Project.

The image above is a Mammoth peace elephant with giant Obey flower + dove.  According to Fairey’s blog, the mural comes in at 70′ x 106′ and is the largest mural he has wheat-pasted or painted to date.
