Note: Art that is created for and about large cities and city life, often done by artists who live in the city and sometimes having a distinctive rough style. Examples are graffiti and street performances. The art is often, but not always, displayed in or on public spaces; it may be uncommissioned and illegally created. The term is typically reserved for modern contexts; it typically refers to visual arts, but may be applied to other art forms as well. For art or architectural elements that are sanctioned or commissioned by the authorities and associated with urban design, prefer "municipal art."
