I am in the process of kicking off a new art initiative for ATL which utilizes existing billboard infrastructure - Turning Billboards into Vision Boards.
We all have experienced and witnessed the power of media in subconsciously shaping our perspective of the world. Image that this powerful infrastructure could be used to promote and encourage positive thinking and behaviors rather than promoting corporate and political agendas.
Imagine an Atlanta skyline where billboards are transformed into Vision Boards - filled with inspirational art whose only agenda is to encourage, empower, and inspire its viewers.
DARK TIMES CALL FOR COLORFUL MEASURES !
Atlanta already has demonstrated through initiatives such as Living Walls and Art Friday that it's citizens actively value and want more public art! Let's continue to encourage the voices of our artist's and visionaries!
Other major cities around the world such as Austin, LA, and Shanghai already have existing programs in place that utilize billboard infrastructure as a canvas for art. Why not ATL?!?
