I get to see some of the world’s best art on the streets of the neighborhood in New York. I live near Bushwick, where street art thrives. Unfortunately, street art can be up for a moment and lost forever. I worked with a team a Grace Hopper to create a web app to capture and map the best street art around the world.
Creating an account allows users to take photos and upload them to Pentimento. Those photos are then displayed on a map for Pentimento visitors to browse. Users can also edit/delete their uploaded photos.
Mapping your favorite artwork
I used Mapbox in conjunction with React.js to display all artworks on a map that is center in New York City coordinates. I added the view as a list functionality and gave users the ability to edit their artwork postings by updating or removing the posting.
