Relief Mural Project / Toledo, Ohio

With street art, anything goes, as long as it’s not in a gallery. Quality varies, but as long as it’s made for the streets, it’s art! (and I’m perfectly ok with that)

The mystery of street art is part of what makes it so powerful. One day, out of nowhere, on your morning commute POOF there is art on a wall you pass every day. Where did it come from? Who made it? What does it mean?

University of Toledo’s Associate Professor Arturo Rodriguez got some kids together to put up wood block prints in Uptown Toledo recently. He documented the approach, and honestly… seeing the kids hang the work adds to the work. A team effort, put up in public places, sanctioned by the city… and it’s still street art.
