NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — If you happen to be in Times Square this month, you may notice a big change on the bright, flashy billboards that tower overhead.
As 1010 WINS’ Juliet Papa reported, the Art Everywhere US: A Very Very Big Art Show project is about taking art to the streets through billboards, bus stops, subway platforms and more.
“To see these incredible images situated in this very public space, it’s pretty extraordinary,” said Donna De Salvo, with the Whitney Museum of American Art.
The Whitney Museum is one of five cultural institutions participating in Art Everywhere, Papa reported.
The billboards will display a total of 58 rotating images of classic and contemporary American artworks that were selected by the public.
