STREET ART ALIVE at THE LUME Los Angeles is a multi-sensory exhibit that transports visitors to an unforgettable journey through the streets and alleys of more than 20 iconic cities, including New York City, London, SaÞo Paulo, Melbourne and Berlin.
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 nestled inside Expo/USC district’s Magic Box at the REEF.
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, will also be on display.
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.
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.
The audio experience for STREET ART ALIVE consists of a specially curated soundtrack with music from genre-defining legends. The exhibit will pound out a mix of 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.
And let’s not forget PI^L.A. featuring a delicious menu by Chef Fred Eric of Fred62; LA-style pan-pizza, salads, sandwiches and more.
“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.” – STREET ART ALIVE
