Say you're trying to figure out where to vacation this summer — how do you choose? Maybe you want the beach, maybe you want a foodie city, or maybe you want to see a lot of feminist public art. Whether it's work celebrating important women in history or created by female artists to fight sexism and misogyny — or both — many cities around the globe have art in spaces open to the public. While museums are awesome, sometime we just want to go for a wander and catch something free in the open air.
Street art of all forms is diverse and constantly changing. Whether it's a formal sculpture or installation or a here-today gone-tomorrow poster or graffiti series, cities and urban landscapes are often the site of exciting new art movements and ideas. For every artwork you weren't able to see — like the installation of Zoe Leonard's famous "I Want A President" poem on the NYC High Line, which only ran until late 2017 — there are new ones popping up all over the world. If you're planning a trip, it's worth investigating what's been installed recently, whether there are any places where new pieces pop up, and what neighborhoods might be fun to wander to catch a glimpse of a cheeky bit of graffiti on a high wall.
