Before street art gained acceptance it was seen as merely vandalism, which to be fair some works being passed off as street art actually are.
But then there are those amazing murals that make the cityscape a little less drab- they’re works of urban art put up outside for people to freely enjoy, but some street art works really belong in a museum.
The Long Beach Museum of Art felt it was time to bring some street art works indoors, and let some traditional painters try their hand at street styles, so they let a bunch of artists paint the walls of their museum.
Results varied in degree of awesomeness, from “hey, that’s pretty cool!” to “ZOMG Wowee Zowee Kapowee!”, and the exhibition proved that letting a bunch of street artists paint the walls inside your museum is a great idea!
