The biggest Street Art Museum in the world.

Origin

Street Art is fleeting.
On the streets of cities all over the world, it comes and goes without a trace. Since 2007, Google has actually been digitising each street, each neighbourhood, each city on the planet and Street Art pieces have been captured everywhere in the world. Google Cultural Institute, whose mission is to make the world’s culture accessible online, aims to exhibit a collection of art from the streets.
