New York Street Advertising Takeover Map

05.19.09 Will Sherman


The photos of last month’s New York Street Advertising Takeover do offer some interesting perspectives, but this interactive map really helps convey the project’s scale. Included on the newly public map are photos of the more than 120 illegal billboards that were whitewashed, photos of the artists’ work, some of their stories, and links to video footage. Besides adding to the creative dimension of the project, the map also helps show how rampant illegal and un-permitted NPA billboards are. Even after painting out 19,000 square feet of illegal ads, there were still dozens of illegal ad spots that were untouched. |Public Ad Campaign|
