Google Immortalizes Street Art In Online Gallery
Internet giant's Google Street Art Project uses Street View stills to preserve what otherwise over time fades away.
Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Bambi, you name it. The works of both established and emerging street artists are getting a new lease of life made possible by Google.
The Google Street Art Project comes in the form of an archival website where users can discover online collections and exhibitions surrounding the history, locations and artists of street art. The project aims to preserve popular street art seen all over the world as part of our shared heritage. Sponsored by the Google Cultural Initiative and in collaboration with global museums and cultural institutions, the project will post street art from around the world alongside fine art made available within the overall Google Art Project.
