Taking art literally to the streets, Dr. Martens' Freedm Sidewalk Galleries are curated art shows exhibited billboard-style on the sides of buildings in New York and San Francisco. Now in its second installation series, each street side "gallery" showcases one of the five emerging artists chosen by either artist Shepard Fairey or Surface magazine brand director Riley Johndonnell. The current crop selected by Fairey are are Ben Collison, Josh Winegar, David Wilson, Jeremy Asher Lynch and Zumberto up in both Williamsburg, Brooklyn and San Francisco until 26 March 2007. Johndonnel's picks, Abel Macias, Dino Alberto, Justine Ashbee, Cris Jones and Amy Reid, will go up in San Francisco 26 March 2007 and come down 26 April 2007.
