The Good Cities Project, Sponsored by Ford

The GOOD cities project is a exploration of our relationship to cities through the eyes of artists, designers, and writers over the course of 5 months. One aspect of the project is a collaboration the Street Museum of Art and three street artists to produce the billboard pictured below.
Artist: Skewville
 Artist: Elle
Artist: Rubin

The GOOD Cities Project — led by Bristol Baughan, Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning filmmaker — is diving into a five-month multi-media exploration with Ford Motor Company and inviting their favorite thought leaders to create visual love letters to cities across the country. This fall, The Street Museum of Art was asked to share our unique and personal perspective of the city we live in and love through billboard takeovers in and around New York during the month of November. Focusing on found works of street art that have taken on lives of their own throughout this city, SMoA’s behind-the-scenes video and billboard designs call for the public to take an active role in the GOOD Cities Project and ‘Rediscover Our City’ through the lens of a street artist.
