Discover street art, stickers, stencils, posters and visual memes (self-replicating ideas) that are posted, copied and mutated in the streets of New York and around the world. During Fall For Chelsea’s one-day-only community arts festival, join us for StreetMemes.com walking tours and scavenger hunt. Guides, including resident meme-ologist and StreetMemes.com editor Ryan Watkin-Hughes, will start out from Eyebeam's facility at 540 W 21st Street between 10th & 11th Avenues. Tours will explore the streets of Chelsea, pointing out and discussing various street art works, then allow the scavenger hunters document the memes they find. Bring your digital cameras or camera phones in order to upload pics to the StreetMemes web database, at www.streetmemes.com, which tracks the global evolution of these viral art forms.
