The Museum of Street Art (MoSA) is a concept illustrated through the street art of the East Village. The neighborhood was systematically photographed in its entirety in 14 straight hours in order to capture a snapshot of the “exhibit”.
A Museum of Street Art is a phenomenon that occurs when there is a high concentration of art and local stakeholder support in a particular outdoor area. This combination creates living, breathing outdoor museums in our cities. Entry is free and daily exhibits are managed by the residents, landlords, local government, visitors, and mother nature. These stakeholders alter the exhibition every day with their competing opinions and priorities, which in turn creates one of the most dynamic and meritocratic museums in the world. MoSA explores this concept by photographing these museums in their entirety on one particular day, as a record and snapshot in time.
