There have been a few recent submissions (1, 2, 3, 4) to the Uncommon Economic Indicators project highlighting economic-themed graffiti and street art. Marc Schiller and Sarah Schiller, founders of the Wooster Collective, a website dedicated to showcasing street art from around the world, discuss the role of public art (or is it vandalism?) is playing in the current economic climate. Are you seeing more street art/graffiti? What's your favorite piece of street art? Is there even such a thing as street art or is it all vandalism to you?Comment below!
