Street Art Changes

Throughout the Internet currently, we can find innumerable pages describing the statistics of the spread of COVID-19 and the effects of catching this deadly disease. It is almost as if everywhere we look, there are negative outpourings of information. However, this is not the case for street art. As the pandemic progresses, street artists are designing motivational and uplifting pieces of art to fill up the streets so that maybe on your walk to work, you can look up to find that there is still hope filling the minds of everyone around you. Some of the street art commend essential workers and some bring out the humor in this strange situation. Though two very different ways of looking upon an event, both are just as valid and encouraging as they lift the edges of your mouth into a smile. Even if you are reading this from a computer and not strolling down the streets right now, we hope this article can simulate an early morning walk through street art that may just make you laugh a little bit:
