Street Art: The NC Museum of Art, Raleigh

Yesterday, I stopped by the NC Museum of Art for their ArtScene 2014 Spring Teen Event. Three Apex student's work was accepted into  the show, which is pretty exciting.

The Museum made a day of it with live bands, food, art activities that everyone could participate in and even free entry into the current exhibition: Estampas de la raza/Prints for the People: The Romo Collection 

(This might be one of the largest  Zonkeys I've done so far)

I'd like to think I have a pretty good relationship with the NCMA. I've work on a few projects with them including taking part in a think tank group for their virtual Game Design class, leading a week long Street Art workshopand having an artwork selected for the Art of the Auction. With all that in mind, the NCMA makes a pretty good spot for a little virtual graffiti... don't you think?!

Did you know that there was a Zonkey born in zoo in Mexico this week?? At the same time, this exhibit about Mexican prints is opening up at the NCMA.. so doesn't it make sense that a Zonkey appear (virtually) on this wall at the NCMA??

Ian Sands is considered a leader in the virtual street art movement. His virtual street art has (not) appeared on spaces in San Diego, Raleigh and even Apex, NC
