“ART EVERYWHERE US” INVADE LAS CALLES DE NY

Con sólo presionar un botón, todos los tablones y pantallas digitales de Nueva York, utilizados normalmente para publicidad, alojaron 58 obras de arte clásicas y contemporáneas para marcar la inauguración del festival Art Everywhere US: A very big art show. Estas imágenes se estarán exhibiendo en 50 000 pantallas digitales a lo largo de los 50 estados que integran la Unión Americana, y se podrán ver tanto en las ciudades como en las carreteras, en las zonas rurales, en aeropuertos, en el metro, en el transporte público, y en todas las plataformas posibles, con lo que esta sería la exposición de mayor envergadura posible en cuanto a su alcance y a su difusión.

With the push of a button this morning, digital billboards across New York’s Times Square began to display images of 58 classic and contemporary works of American art, officially marking the start of Art Everywhere US. From now through August 31, as many as 50,000 digital and static displays in all 50 states—billboards on city streets and rural highways, displays on bus shelters and subway platforms, dioramas in airports, videos in health clubs, trailers in movie theaters and more—will present the largest outdoor art show ever conceived, as a nationwide celebration of America’s artistic heritage. The 58 images, which span 230 years of American art, are drawn from the collections of five major museums across the country—the Art Institute of Chicago; the Dallas Museum of Art; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. The museums have collaborated with the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA) and its members to present Art Everywhere US with the co-operation of artists, estates, foundations, and rights agencies. The choice of artworks was informed by a public vote on www.ArtEverywhereUS.org, which now functions as an interactive art gallery. Visitors to the site may retrieve information about the selected works, read about the story of art in the United States, see which works are on advertising displays in their vicinity, and find the locations of specific works around the United States.
