Street art such as the graffiti or the vibrant murals in Mbare are often short lived due to certain societal and environmental elements that are constantly threatening to destroy these works of art. Yet, Google’s Cultural Institute – an initiative that allows anyone with an internet connection to peruse exhibits and collections from museums and archives all around the world – launched its latest project this past Tuesday to bring over 5,000 images and around 100 exhibitions of street art to the web.
Google envisions a world in which the destruction of iconic street art will no longer mean the end of its impact on our culture and the generations to come. For a closer look at Google’s Street Art Project click here.
