Mapping Cairo’s street art

    Last week, I wrote about how political street art is popping up all over Egypt since the fall of Mubarak. Now there is a great new site that is plotting the location of graffiti around Cairo on Google Maps, in case you’re visiting and would like to see it for yourself.  The above video shows how to use the map and how you can contribute to the project, if you’re aware of art that isn’t already included on the site.
