ARMYs don’t need permission to get to know their favorite septet BTS, as the superstars are sharing their favorite art pieces in BTS x Street Galleries, a collaboration with Google Arts & Culture. The virtual gallery also takes fans on a Street View tour of cities and buildings all over the world that hold special memories for the band, and may be viewed at g.co/BTSstreetgalleries.
Through BTS x Street Galleries, ARMY can explore 14 iconic locations, including the United Nations in New York City to the Chunggu Building in Seoul, where BTS’ stories began. At each location, fans can create their own Street Gallery and view a great variety of artworks, from 18th-century Korean “moon jars” to Caravaggio paintings. These pieces were selected by the band based on values that are close to their heart. In addition, BTS x Street Galleries showcase exclusive photographs and creations by RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin, V, and Jung Kook themselves.
This experience was made possible by the collaboration of cultural institutions from around the world with Google Street View technology.
To continue the celebration of ARMY’s ninth anniversary, BTS and YouTube Shorts also released the #MyBTStory “ARMY Tribute Video.” This features highlights from the month-long Shorts challenge that had ARMY sharing some of their favorite BTS memories through the years.
