BSA Special Feature: ShowZart – Man One / A Street Art Story
Artists helping artists – yes it actually happens. Here in downtown Los Angeles, where Street Art has been a large part of the scene for quite a while, a residency in an old abandoned hotel gives artists an opportunity to live and create. One artist curated a brother artist who was homeless into his own residency, and the results are inspiring.

“Opening Lines” with Pat Perry
Michigan Street Artist/muralist/commercial artist Pat Perry lives in Detroit but created this sister city mural duo that bridges the gap between countries and cultures. With children as messengers, this video illustrates universal truths and the power of art to break down barriers, build bridges between people in Biddeford, Maine and Slemani, Iraq. Also, its cheaper than bombs – although less profitable for the war industry.
Kids Dancing it out on the streets with murals …because it’s summer baby!
Summer’s here and the time is right for dancing in the streets! Where better to shoot a video of these kids doing their stuff than in front of Welling Court murals in Queens. Students from Arya Dance Academy, these Bollywood beauties act like tough stuff as they incorporate South Asian dance techniques with the latest global youth culture moves, making New Yorkers proud.
