"Street Art at the NCMS" Last Day!

For our last street art project, we decided to do a little art bombing at the NC Museum of Art. We got some cardboard and some paint and created some art we could stick on a stick... or in a tree.

Hard at work creating some art for are art bombing.

Choosing the right color is always important.

Once we were done, we headed out to the front of the NCMA to place our art.

Are you looking at that art??? Or is that art looking at you!


Taco the Cow.


A view from the path.

Then we all went home.

The End!

"Street Art at the NCMA" Day 4

Today, we had the opportunity to do a little masking tape and Post-it Note bombing at the NC Museum of Art. It sure did raise a stir with some people but most people really liked it.  Here are some photos from the event.

“Street Art 101” at the NCMA Day 3

So right outside the museum is this fence and right outside the fence is this sign that reads, "Graffiti Prohibited" and so I thought that would be a great spot to do a little cup rocking.

I stole the term cup rocking from Australian street artist, Andy Uprock who is infamous for making cup graffiti. You need 1. a fence 2. cups. ...

... Lots of cups. And spray paint if you want different colored cup which, or course, we did. 

Then it is just a matter of placing the cups in the fence until you get the desire design. 

Here is a look at several of our pieces across the fence. 

Below are the rest of the finished works.

“Street Art 101” at the NCMA Day 2

We started today's adventure in street art creation by taking a tour of the museum. "What street art is in the museum?" you might ask. None, but there is still cool art that uses new materials and has street art qualities so off we went. 

I'm not sure if you can tell by looking at the picture but this work of art is a plane made out of lots of butterflies. 

Devorah Sperber's Mona Lisa made out of thousands of spools of thread. 

Funky colors and glitter!

When we got back to the studio, there was still some stencil cutting to do... but not much. so we went straight to it.

It wasn't long before some of the stencils were done so we headed outside with our spray paint. 

It is most important to always check which way the nozzle is facing before you start spraying. "Do I have paint on my face?" was a common question for the day. Answer was "Yes, and in your hair ,and on your shirt, and some of it actually got on your stencil."

Here are a few of the completed stencils.

She just finished spraying and is now pulling up the stencil to reveal the work beneath.

And here is the end result.

We also took a few moments to spray cups so we can do some cup rocking tomorrow.

This is a practice piece. Tomorrow, we'll take it to the fence.

See you then!

“Street Art 101” at the NCMA

Today was day one of the week long Street Art workshop at the NC Museum of Art with your host, Ian Sands. We kicked off the event by creating a drawing on a Post-it Note that represented us. Then we practiced the art of stealthily hanging our art in the Museum. 

"Stealthily", so as to not get caught... "in the museum" cause everyone should have a piece of art hanging in the museum... don't you agree? The piece above is affixed to the window overlooking the park.

Armed and ready. Here are the ingredients for our street art. The usual art supplies you'd find in any decent art supply store.. spray paint, paper cups, Post-it Notes, etc...

So what's on the agenda? Well, we plan to do a little cup rocking. You know, making graffiti in fences using cups. The museum has lots of fences and we have lots of cups. it's a marriage made in Heaven. 

And by planning, I mean planning. Here we are using printouts of what a fence looks like and drawing in the cups with magic markers.

A few of the plans in the works..

We even planned out how many cups we would need. This is a mustache ... or cupstache!

We also plan on creating a masking tape mural, a Post-It Note mural, some sidewalk art and of course... what Street Art workshop would be complete without.... spray paint stencils! 

So there was a lot of planning today. Everyone was working on something.

Check back tomorrow to view our progress!
