The Google Street Art Project began in June of 2014 to loads of excitement. Publishing thousands of street art images and collectively organizing them in a database, Google is attempting to document this renaissance and make it wholly accessible across multiple platforms.

The Container Yard, a hotbed for street art creation in DTLA, played host to the Street Art Project event and brought together contributors and appreciators alike to enjoy a new tools dedicated to capturing this art phenomenon.

Google Street View, a technology featured in Google Maps, provide panoramic views of various locations and The Google Cultural Institute uses this technology to capture images of street art, museum exhibits, and historical sites providing access to sites some of us don’t get a chance to experience.

Google also unveiled Liquid Galaxy, which allows users to virtually visit major street art venues with a extensive view of the street art arena and provides art enthusiasts with an experience like never before. “Speak Truth” was an audio/visual installation that allowed visitors to step inside a soundproof booth and translate spoken word into sound waves creating an audio wave art piece.

Overall, the key to succeeding with this project is the human contribution factor. We all can play a huge part in making this enjoyable for the generations to come. Street Art is a part of our everyday lives and I’m a pioneer for making sure it stays that way.
