HuffPost Arts @ 2 : “most widely read arts blog in the world”

And thank you for your unrelenting support of Street Art and Street Artists

This week marks the two year anniversary that Arianna Huffington and Kimberly Brooks and team launched HuffPost Arts and we congratulate them on this achievement. An artist herself, Kimberly has employed that special vision, enthusiasm, and guidance to the venture,  allowing it to grow in an organic way, encouraging many voices to sing and many views to be seen. Like Kimberly says in her piece today, “We embrace the idea that everyone is an artist.”

“Here we are, two years later, after the merger with AOL, our expansion into Europe, Canada and Latin America — the art, writings and comments you see here now constitute the most widely read arts blog in the world,” she says as she surveys the journey.


Brooklyn Street Art is proud that we have been contributors to HuffPost Arts since its inception with our in-studio interview with Street Artist Gaia right here in Brooklyn on June 17, 2010.  Since that time we became regular contributors to the page with 63 pieces on Street Art around the world, in studios, and in museums. With Brooks’ avid encouragement and the expert guidance of Arts Editor Kathleen Massara, we have even been able to scoop publications like The LA Times and the New York Times with our reviews of LA MoCA’s “Art in the Streets” and the Brooklyn Museum’s important Keith Haring show this spring.

Kimberly likes to say that bloggers are like the Street Artists of the Internet.  She may be pulling our leg, or she could be right on target. Whatever it is, we’re happy as hell about it!

Fun Friday 06.18.10 : We Have a Winner!


Contest Winner for “For Your Eyes Only”

You guys are good!  And so many got so close in guessing the full list of “Eyes” last week.

So here are the answers:





The big sticking points for most people were Number 2, which a lot of people guessed was Os Gemeos, and Number 4 which some thought was Neckface or Royce Bannon.

But don’t feel bad if you didn’t get them all – nobody did.  Our winner is Sandrine from Montreal, Quebec, who was the first person to guess 7 out of 8 correctly (she guessed #4 was Neckface).  Congratulations to Sandrine and your original and signed piece from Chris of Robots Will Kill will be in the mail Monday!

Thanks everybody who participated. We’ll have another contest soon!

Ya Hearrrd? BSA on HUFF PO


Yo homey, still doing a Snoopy dance on the subway this morning because your favorite Street Art blog was up on yesterday. Arianna Huffington is one of the few straightforward truthtellers in a storm of darkness year after year, and this is like when it is your turn at Double Dutch and Malcolm McLaren  happens to be walking up your block. Okay, big difference is I don’t wear striped red disco shorts and grew up on a farm upstate and never heard of Brownsville or Buffalo Girls till “Duck Rock” came out —but otherwise it’s totally the same yo.

Leave a comment at Huffington Post and tell them how good BSA is at swinging those ropes!
