red location museum

a world class museum bridging the past towards the future

street art

 

A street art event, focusing on HIV/AIDS which was one of the public programmes linked to the NoNameFever-uGawulayo exhibition, took place at Red Location Museum on 8 December 2008 between 08:00 to 16:00.

The art was done in pastels over the surface of Olof Palme Street ( in front of the Museum entrance).

Street art is a term referring to art being done on a street surface and can include traditional graffiti artwork, stencil graffiti, sticker art, wheat-pasting, street poster art, video projection, art intervention, and street installations.

Local artists assisted with the street art exercise and the youth from the community joined in.

Despite the  fact that  the original pastel pigments have since disappeared, traces of the street art drawings can still be seen almost a year later - as the community children living opposite the Museum continuously redraw the original shapes with stones and charcoal!
