Google Street Art Project: Repository of Graffiti and Murals

Google's Cultural Institute launched their Street Art Project to document street art from giant graffiti to small stenciled murals before they disappear forever! The art project is an ongoing collection of art from the street which was launched with 5,000 high-resolution images which are searchable by artist and location on an interactive map. The images captured by Google Street view cameras and submissions by cultural institutions and artists from all over the globe. 

Google Cultural Institute’s director Amit Sood says the goal of the project is to turn the world into “one huge open-air gallery for everyone to enjoy.”
