Putting Art in Ad Places

Seeing how we’re already into February, I thought I’d share some of the first images from Art in Ad Places, a year-long ad takeover project I’ve committed to documenting. Once a week for 52 weeks, an advertisement in a NYC telephone booth will be removed and replaced with art.

Why? Because:

Outdoor advertising is visual pollution.
Outdoor advertising can be psychologically damaging.
Outdoor advertising is pushed on viewers without their consent.
Outdoor advertising marks underutilized venues for other messages.
By replacing advertisements with artwork, Art in Ad Places provides a public service and alternative vision of our public environment.
