Get Up NY Turns Instagram Photos Into Street Art

by: Joseph On  Tuesday, January 20, 2015

It’s common enough to see street art on Instagram, but have you ever seen … Instagram photos on the street? That’s the premise behind Get Up NY, a street art collective that turns Instagram photos hashtagged with #GetUpNY into real, live art on the streets of New York City. And you could join in on the action.

Basically, the people at Get Up NY browse Instagram photos with the #GetUpNY hashtag. Once they select one to become New York street art, they print it and wheat paste it around the city. The result is the spread of art and maybe some extra Instagram photos for the people lucky enough to get picked.

You can see a few examples of the Get Up NY craft in the gallery below. And to see a lot more from the project, head over to the Get Up NY Instagram account right here.
