Where would you like to see street art in Helsinki? Do you have a building or a place in mind that is especially in need of some color and cheering up? More Street Art In Helsinki is running a contest where three locations in Helsinki get the chance to win a street art face-lift, designed and executed by high-class street art professionals. The contest is running from 2nd of May until 6th of June, 2016.
The artists working on the pieces will take the residents’ preferences and views into consideration. More Street Art In Helsinki will be responsible for covering the costs of the design and the execution of the three art pieces, as well as for applying for the necessary permits for the pieces from the city.
