opened his local newspaper
in Vilnius, Lithuania this week and
found a story about the Wooster Colective website.  He writes:

/>“i checked today’s newspaper
and guess what i found in weekly art section in the biggest and best lithuanian
newspaper “LIETUVOS RYTAS” (Lithuanian Morning href="http://www.lrytas.lt/">www.lrytas.lt).  they mentioned wooster in art
news !”

For us,
it’s amazing to see just how global the street art scene has become. We’re
always suprised, and a bit astonished, to see stories in the press in which the
Wooster website is mentioned or featured. Other than the articles Sara and I
write for our friends at magazines like Vapors and Theme (and soon - Shepard
Fairey and Roger Gastman’s excellent Swindle Magazine) we’ve never actively
sought out any press on the site or what we do.

So Meq was kind
enough to translate the article about for us:


.  “Not everyone can walk in Melbourne, Baghdad or Vilnius streets
and check out street art, but it is possible to do virtualy, - wrote “Wired”. -
Website created by New Yorkers href="http://www.woostercollective.com/">www.woostercollective.com gives you
an opportunity to see street art and graffiti examples from all over the world”. 
Yes, in this website you can see street art examples from Vilnius. Graffiti
lovers are told that in Vilnius you can paint anywhere, you just have to watch
out for the cops.

The Wired aticle that the article referrs to can
be read href="http://www.wired.com/news/culture/0,1284,67317,00.html?tw=wn_10culthead">h

Also, not to long ago SpY of the Tha Mambo Kings was extremely kind to send us a video (in the
WMV format) of the Wooster website being featured on a Spanish tv channel.  We
have no idea what the host on the show is saying, but hopefully it’s positive.
If you know, please let us know.  We’re curious. You can download the video href="www.woostercollective.com/images2/woosterspain.wmv">here.
