“What exactly is street art?” 

It is a visionary art form that is usually developed in open public areas and even though it is met with negative connotation, it offers freedom of expression. Utilizing tools as simple as spray paint, ink and markers, street artists are making an unbelievable stamp in the history of art.

Art In The Streets, will serve as an eye opener to the world, offering an array of uniquely designed graffiti and street art. the exhibition provides various sculptures, paintings, photographs and other distinctive art forms by 50 of the most dynamic street artists.

OUTSIDE IN: THE STORY OF ART IN THE STREETS

Like it or not, “Art in the Streets” was one of the most important things to happen to the art world in the last few years, and one of the biggest things ever to happen to graffiti and street art. Director Alex Stapleton takes us inside the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles’ famous exhibition.

From Shepard Fairey to Lee Quiñones, Swoon, Futura, and Mister Cartoon; from Revok to Martha Cooper, Invader and more, the show that took place from April 17-August 8, 2011, followed graffiti and street art as far back as Basquiat and even some of the gang graffiti in the 1940s and 50s in LA. Graffiti and street art are mainstays of the high art world now, and this documentary aims to show how MOCA contributed to that fact.

For the record, I thought the show was tastefully done with what highly controversial subject matter they had to work with.

Enjoy the documentary, it’s perfect for weekend 😉

+Hubble Space Telescope Captures View of 'Mystic Mountain'

Hubble’s 20th anniversary image shows a mountain of dust and gas rising in the Carina Nebula. The top of a three-light-year tall pillar of cool hydrogen is being worn away by the radiation of nearby stars, while stars within the pillar unleash jets of gas that stream from the peaks.
