Tunney Art Hits NYC Billboards To Celebrate Landmarks

This is kind of old news but as far as I understand, these billboards "donated" to Peter Tunney artworks are actually illegal billboards that cannot hold traditional advertising content. If someone from Outfront wants to confirm or deny that in the comments, it would be greatly appreciated. Paint The City seems to be the organizing agency with All Vision as thier largest partner. I don't mean to be a debbie downer but this ain't altruism. 

The NYC Landmarks 50 Alliance and OUTFRONT Media are working with artist Peter Tunney to run a billboard art series highlighting New York City landmarks. You can read a mediavillage post about the project from OUTFRONT Media’s Executive Vice President of Strategic Planning & Development, Andy Sriubas here. Insider talked with Carly Zipp of OUTFRONT Media about the project. More [HERE]
