Street Art, Graffiti, and Mural Museums
Urban Nation (Berlin, Germany)
From their Website: "The vision of a global art community, a network without limits, became reality on September 16 when URBAN NATION MUSEUM FOR URBAN CONTEMPORARY ART opened its doors."
The Street Museum of Art (SMoA)
Founded 2012. From Google Arts & Culture: "The Street Museum of Art (SMoA) is a public art project that challenges previous methods of exhibiting street art by adopting the guerrilla tactics of street art and graffiti culture in a program of curated exhibitions. The project is run anonymously and exhibitions are mapped out by the placement of didactic labels around each city, mimicking those found in traditional museums. By bringing the concept of the museum outside, SMoA is encouraging visitors to actually go experience each piece within its original context, on the street. Much like the essential nature of street art, The Street Museum of Art is ephemeral; the duration of the exhibitions is entirely reliant on external forces and the reaction of the public."
Graffiti and Street Art Museum of Texas (GASAM) (Houston, Texas)
From their website: "The GASAM Texas is established as a 501(c)(3) corporation that is committed to providing the public, artists and scholars of the creative arts with a visual showcase and destination for graffiti and street art not only providing permanent and visiting exhibitions but also providing a forum for the public to explore their own artistic talents with on site lectures and interactive workshops. The museum will strive to preserve street art history by authenticating historical time lines of the graffiti and street art movements, while also promoting the art forms of today’s creative artistic community."
Street Art Museum Amsterdam (SAMA) (Amsterdam, Netherlands)
From Google Arts & Culture: "Our unique street art collection is constantly growing not only with the artworks but also stories by and about the internationally acclaimed artists specialising in creating works in public space. We carefully select each artist and give them full freedom of artistic expression. We are the ONLY recognised Street Art Museum in Amsterdam (and Netherlands). The collection is designed in such way that you can visit all of the pieces within 3 hours and provides a flexible starting platform for the small scale local economy.
