Junior Urban Adventure: Street Art

  1. 1. Street Art
  2. 2.  Interviewed Street and Public Artists like John Ewing, Hargo, Gary Stark, and Jeremy Gaucher  Viewed some of their art work and reflected on it  Created street art of our own, including two designs and also by tagging… and it wasn’t vandalism  Walked to the Cambridge Arts Council and several other places in Cambridge  Interviewed people in Central Square and asked the question, “Is this Art or Vandalism?” and asked for their perspective.
  3. 3.  Popularized art is not always the most free form of expression. Hargo has a day job and street art is only his hobby  Most people do not like talking to random people with cameras on the side of the street  Many people value street art as a viable form of art rather than vandalism  Public art is important to the development of a community as a whole  The Wall, as well as all street art, is important to leaving behind a piece of yourself  The fact that the wall was open to anyone was important to keeping the spirit and freedom of street art alive  Venue and legality is important to deciding what is art and what is vandalism  The idea behind each piece is also important to its value
  4. 4. •Professional lives sometimes need to be kept separate from controversial hobbies in order to be taken seriously. •Different artists have different opinions on how legality affects the validity of their art, some believe that it is only true art if you don’t ask permission to do it. •Most of us think that art is able to be appreciated regardless of legality, however the opportunity to create street art legally is very important. •You don’t have to be an established artist to have your work appreciated in public. •Different view points, styles, and backgrounds are important to maintaining the dynamic nature of street art.
