BMDb v0.3

Big Mural Database (BMDb) tries to collect and catalog all big murals created in The Netherlands. This includes works that are currently on view in the streets, but also those that are gone. Hopefully thanks to this database they will live on.

This project aims to record art history and promote the preservation of urban art. It is not intended to be used as a city guide, street art map or any other way to find murals.

This project is not even close to being done. Working on: adding a lot more murals, more metadata for each individual mural and new features for using this database. I will keep track of any big updates on this page.

Updates
v0.3 (May 2024) – Added ‘Status’ to all murals. It can be Active (mural is still there) or Inactive (mural is gone). Also added 150 more artworks. Still a lot more to come.
v0.2 (May 2024) – Added the first set of real data (100 murals). Lots more coming soon.
v0.1 (April 2024) – This version of BMDb is a proof of concept. Don’t mind the data used.
