My digital art, Hull Court Gate, was one of the artworks selected for display on Times Square this past Monday! The photo is part of my Digital Gothic series of scenes from the Gothic Revival architecture on the University of Chicago campus.
Art Takes Times Square
This event was hosted by Artists Wanted in New York City. There were about 35,000 artworks submitted for this event from all across the world. One million people voted on the contest entries. So I am quite grateful to all those who voted to display my art on the billboards at Times Square, and to the event curators who selected Hull Court Gate for display. The event took place Monday June 18, 2012, from 7pm to 11pm. My art was displayed on a billboard at Broadway and 43rd Street. A lively crowd of artists and art fans enjoyed watching artworks stream across the billboards.
“An event like this is a celebration of the city, of the artists … of the creative culture that New York City fosters,” said Artists Wanted CEO William Etundi Jr.
This is actually the second international exhibit for my Digital Gothic art. The Streaming Festival 6th Edition was curated and sponsored by the isfth foundation, The Hague, The Netherlands, in December, 2011. This online international exhibit included video and sound Artists, and for the first time, also 2D Artists. I was very pleased that my Digital Gothic series of cityscape photos was selected, and hope you visit the online archives.
