The murals that transformed the walls of Station North are now on display for the world to see.

Open Walls Baltimore has joined the Google Street Artcollection, which features high-resolution images of works from Buenos Aires to Atlanta to Istanbul, as well as Street View mural panoramas.

"This little slice of Baltimore for everyone to see is really exciting," said Kate Ewald, media and communications manager for the Station North Arts & Entertainment District.

Besides exposing the city and the arts district to art lovers world-wide, the Google collection will also help to preserve the murals before they lose color or are painted over, Ewald said.

"It's certainly created some buzz for when Open Walls 3 is going to happen," she said.

Open Walls Baltimore, which occurred in 2012 and 2014, featured more than 35 artists from North and South America, Europe and Asia, who were selected by curator Gaia. They created large-scale painted murals and installations throughout the arts district.

The Google collection began in 2014 and includes thousands of images.
