Hardcore Museum Ads

Original image

The ad above was created by Jenny Burrows and Matt Kappler for their art portfolios. Originally, the logo at the bottom belonged to The Smithsonian. But once Jenny and Matt's work started getting attention online, the Smithsonian folks decided they weren't crazy about the free publicity and asked the artists to take down the ads immediately. Jenny ended up swapping in the generic "Museums" logo seen above.

If you like the Roosevelt/50 Cent ad, be sure to take a quick trip over to Geekosystem to check out more of the wonderful posters.

100 Street Artists Turned This College Dorm in Paris Into a Graffiti Gallery

This summer, a college dorm in Paris received a colorful—albeit temporary—interior makeover after dozens of graffiti artists joined forces to adorn its walls, ceilings, and floors with collages, murals, and painted designs.

As My Modern Met reports, the artists spent three weeks painting the student residence at the Cité Internationale Universitaire as part of Rehab 2, an urban festival held from June 16 to July 16. The school will soon undergo renovations, so the artworks aren’t long for this world—but luckily for street art fans, pictures of the vibrant graffiti have been posted on social media for our prolonged enjoyment.

Check some of them out below:
