New York Street Advertising Takeover

The morning of April 25, 2009, Jordan Seiler coordinated the removal of over 120 illegal advertisement billboards in New York City.  In the afternoon, he coordinated over 40 artists to have their way with these freshly cleared canvases. 

He coordinated with me to document the entire day of events.

I will coordinate with my laptop and edit the footage over the next few weeks.

Here are some pictures I took:
