Wall to Wall Public Art

Wall to Wall Public Art

For the uninitiated, Side Street Projects is an off-the-grid (sort of) nonprofit that encourages and enables artists to take their art-making into the community. There are lots of rigorous art-theoretical phrasings for their activities (“an alternative practice” of “complex public negotiations;” “meta-public art”), but the results are often accessible and enjoyable, even… family-friendly (!).
