THE STREET MUSEUM OF ART:
The city’s streets have become gallery walls for this urban museum.
Admission is always free and the hours are limitless.
SMoA is the first public art project to adopt the guerrilla tactics of a street artist in a program of curated exhibitions.
Guerilla curating for a radical art form
The Street Museum of Art (SMoA) challenges previous methods of exhibiting street art. SMoA’s unauthorized program of public exhibitions that call for one to physically walk through the city and experience each piece first-hand, within its original context. Didactic labels publicly posted alongside each of the artists’ works encourage a more direct interaction between the viewer, the art and the city’s vibrant landscape. Much like the essential nature of street art, The Street Museum of Art is ephemeral; the duration of the exhibitions is entirely reliant on external forces and the reaction of the public.
