Google street art project

Introducing the Google Street Art Project

The Google Cultural Institute launched in 2011 with the goal of sharing and preserving art with high-resolution pictures. In the past three years, the institute has posted millions of pictures from 44 countries with over 300 active partners, including museums, galleries, and professional photographers.

This week the institute launched the Street Art Project, an ongoing open gallery for people to share street art they find or create with the world. The site alphabetically logs pictures by artist names for display to the web. The Street Art Project is not partial to legal work and includes many pictures of illegal graffiti and street art. The site includes a Google Map feature showing the arts physical location, a video blog documenting artists and projects, a hi-def zoom in feature, and Street View-style tours of iconic street art related buildings.

“These works of art that decorate our streets do not always hang about for long, which is why we’re delighted to work with partners around the globe to help them tell a story of street art around the globe,” said Amit Sood, director of Google Cultural Institute.
