Boston Magazine Features Northeastern’s Street Art

Northeastern’s collection of public art around campus is growing, with internationally-renowned sketch artist Jef Aérosol as the most recent contributor.

Although the Public Art Initiative launched officially in 2014, it got its “silent start,” as Aoun calls it, in 2009, when Northeastern reached out to famed street artist Shepard Fairey, who was exhibiting at the Institute of Contemporary Art at the time, to paint a mural inside the lobby of the International Village, an on-campus housing complex.
