Intérieur Rue: when street furniture becomes street art

Street art  is often displayed on walls or trains, but also on urban furniture. The Wallworks gallery, near Canal Saint-Martin and Hotel Mareuil, organizes an exhibit featuring the works of about thirty graffiti artists from France and abroad.  They all have one thing in common: urban furniture as canvas for the art. Thus you will see stoplights, train signals, or pedestrian crossing lights, all decorated in bright colors. A bit of pep in the urban scene!

The «Intérieur rue» exhibit, from October 10 through January 9, 2014.
Open Monday through Saturday from 2pm to 7pm.
Free admission.
