This past week world renowned street artists, including some of Freeway Editions' very own, have been working on a series of mural projects at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. These artists have come together to create a community conversation around the accessibility and social impact of street art.

From the press release:
“Street art has exploded as an anti-authoritarian form of art making and an important global movement happening in the visual arts today,” said curator and author G. James Daichendt in a recent TEDx speech,“The Streets As Canvas.” “Even if you’ve never stepped foot into a museum or gallery, you’ve been impacted by street art since it lives in the corners of our communities.”
In recognition of this phenomenon, ArtCenter College of Design has organized OUTSIDEIN:The Ascendance of Street Art in Visual Culture, an expansive indoor and outdoor exhibition opening October 9, 2015, and continuing through January 10, 2016, at multiple venues in Pasadena. Initiated by ArtCenter’s Illustration Department Chair Ann Field, the exhibition’s curatorial team also includes Daichendt and Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery Director Stephen Nowlin.
Featured in the show are artists Olivia Bevilacqua, David Flores, CHASE, Robbie Conal, Cryptik, Jeanne Detallante, Shepard Fairey, James Jean, Geoff McFetridge, RISK, Kenny Scharf and Jeff Soto, who is an ArtCenter alumnus."
