Street Art View: Add to "The World's Largest Art Collection"

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Google's been making it a little hard for art fans to get work done.

Following the release of Google Art Project, which allows users to tour 17 big-name museums around the world, the same technology is powering Street Art View, a virtual tour of pieces, murals, and wheatpastes from Brazil to Paris and Los Angeles to Phoenix.

You can browse certain areas, search for works by specific artists (though the list is currently short), and add or tag images within your own neighborhood. The mural above is on McKinley Avenue by Phoenix's Joerael Elliott.

The project's a collaboration between Redbull and Brazilian ad agency Loducca, who are looking for everyone to add to the "the world's largest art collection." So get tagging, er painting ... you know what we mean.
