#StreetArtFest: Pop Up Curation Online!

On Monday, July 9th, four teams of artists, designers and filmmakers set out from The New School into the Union Square environs to photograph and videotape #StreetArtFest.

Each team member also had a twitter partner for creating a live tweet dialogue using the hashtags #streetart #fest #vmlab, sending pics via Instagram and Twitpics. Participants via Twitter were @tactilejbowe, @joshbinder, @jazmagoto, @verkokel, @katalquist, @Sinerxion, @nastiaNS, @throwingchair, @petamni, @mellyc5 and our Flickr curator, @MariaJesusV. Along the way, we gained additional pics from @deanna, @kellipop, @kHyal and engaged in tweet-versation with @stephspiro and others from the @vmlab community.

With repeat images across neighborhoods, clearly certain artists had been making the rounds. Notable was the “Evianair” and “Poland SpringAir” photograffiti series for its Eco-overtones.

The #StreetArtFest created a multi-layered dialogue, party-style, with a pop-up curation event online.
