On April 22, 2022, “Street Art Alive” officially opened to the public. The interactive installation opens at The Lume Los Angeles. The multi-sensory exhibit that transports visitors on an unforgettable journey through the streets and alleys of more than 20 iconic cities, including New York City, London, SaÞo Paulo, Melbourne and Berlin. Remember to confirm with the venue last minute covid protocols and guidelines – (proof of vaccination and masks MAY be required).
Grande Experiences, world leaders in multi-sensory art and culture experiences, is partnering with Magic Box LA, a unique event center in downtown Los Angeles, to co-produce a new digital art gallery.
To bring this highly unique and authentic experience to life, Grande Experiences, owners and creators of The Lume digital art galleries, and creators of “Street Art Alive,” worked in collaboration with prolific artists including Blek Le Rat, considered the Godfather of stencil art, D*Face, known for vibrant pop art-inspired murals and Lady Pink, nicknamed “First Lady of Graffiti,” one of the first women active in the early ‘80s New York City subway graffiti subculture.
The “Street Art Alive” experience includes:
•Interactive installations throughout over 25,000 sq. ft, featuring a large-scale, 360-degree multi-sensory gallery.
•Eight original full-sized sections of the Berlin Wall, which artists from across the globe used as a canvas for their political statements and powerful social commentary. Throughout the exhibit’s run, The Lume Los Angeles will invite local street artists to add their voices to these iconic and symbolic concrete walls.
•An audio experience for “Street Art Alive” with a specially curated soundtrack with music from genre-defining legends. From the distorted punk/pop spilling out of CBGB’s onto the Bowery in New York City in the late ’70s to the turntablism, break beats and rap poetry of 80’s Hip Hop, street art is the visual expression of these seminal sounds.
•Themed café and bar
“Street Art Alive” showcases a pivotal art movement and tells the story of street art through the lens of the artists in a way that visitors of all ages and cultures can relate to. Art generated from the streets from all over the world transcends the art itself, striking at the heart of social issues, community sentiment, politics and current world affairs.
