If you happen to be walking around Williamsburg this month, you’ll likely pass right through the inaugural exhibition of New York’s newest art museum without realizing it. The Street Museum of Art has taken the guerrilla tactics of street artists and applied them to curation with their exhibition In Plain Sight.

From the SMoA’s news release:

Rather than trying to displace these inherently public works of art within a gallery setting, The Street Museum of Art coexists with the vibrancy of New York City’s urban environment. Much like the essential nature of street art, In Plain Sight is ephemeral. The duration of this exhibition is entirely reliant on external forces and the reaction of the public.
