Since there are some cool contemporary maritime influenced art projects currently on exhibit across the globe, we’ve declared this Maritime Art Week. Here’s a peak at a another.
The Wooster Collective is one of my favorite art blogs. Their interest is primarily street art and I’ve previously posted some of their incredible discoveries. Last week they posted about The Container Art Project which is currently in Italy.
From the Container Art Project website, “What is container art?”
Empty containers ambling around the world, filling with beauty wherever they stop.
An urban, itinerant and adaptive art exhibit. Installations, sculptures, and paintings of the most innovative talents of the local and global artscape in many containers spread around town. A different work of contemporary art in each container, a different mix of artists in each city. Interactive containers connecting communities far away through art.
We amble around the world following our impulses and interests.
