Mural, Mural on the Wall.

Stunning Street Art courtesy of the Museum of Public Art. Despite the name the Museum is not your typical air-conditioned gallery. Check out the video.

Also of note is their Mural House project to rekindle the spirit of the faded community of Old South Baton Rouge.

artcrimes.org was one of the first websites I would visit regularly back in the late 90s. Nosm was one of the coolest cats on the planet, and all the cool muralists wore FUCT and Tribal Gear swag. OBEY just put up a beautiful mural in my city (Costa Mesa) last year. It's pretty massive. "Con safos" and Chicano work can be found next door in Santa Ana, too. You can walk through almost any random neighborhood in Santa Ana and find something special.

Neat! You don't expect to see this kind of thing in Baton Rouge. Or at least not so much of it, of such high quality. Here's a couple of articles about the organization: Country Roads and 225 Magazine.

I love this thing about bringing international street artists in to paint murals in a town. My sister was recently involved in bringing Eduardo Kobra from Brazil to Palm Beach County, FL to paint MLK Jr. The new Urban Nation museum in Berlin kicked off with a month-long event of street artists from all over the world putting works up in Berlin. Good stuff.

I wonder what artists Baton Rouge is developing and exporting?
