Rather than trying to displace these inherently public works of art within a gallery setting, The Street Museum of Art coexists with the vibrancy of New York City’s urban environment.

Gaia, Williamsburg (2012) by GaiaThe Street Museum of Art

While the work included in this exhibition may be clearly visible to any pedestrian walking down the street, many remain unnoticed by the jaded eyes of New York City locals. Each piece has been cleverly positioned by the artists­ – hidden in plain sight, taunting those who pass by to stop and look.
