THE INDEPENDENT VOICE OF THE VISUAL ARTS

Letter to the Editor

 

Dear New Art Examiner,

 

The Overide project in Chicago puts a small amount of art amongst the advertisements on digital billboards—reversing the relationship on TV where there is more program than ads.

What about having lots of art, 500 artists not 50 or all art not a miniscule fraction?

In the '80s, I saw Soviet propoganda in the streets on a visit to Moscow. Returning I saw clearly in Piccadilly, London, for what it is, nonstop ads, capitalist propaganda in neon.

 

Mary Fletcher, artist in Cornwall, UK
