Vancouver Public Art: Beatty Street

600 BLOCK, BEATTY STREET, VANCOUVER, BC - This baby has taken on the best of any life in this no-fun city. Graffiti is either an annoyance or beauty, but wow, this is awesome. Having been painted over on December 23 '09 by the Engineering Department (aka City Works) in a boring, lifeless, blue that would make anyone vomit profusely, life has returned with new public art.

"The Beatty Street Mural Project aims to explore the effects of applying various social networking concepts to a monumental public art installation. Creating an interactive platform between the community, the artists, photographers, bloggers, etc."

Life's better after the Olympics.
