About the Billboard Project:
In 2013 The Arts at CIIS is reaching outside the walls of the school and into the streets. Our first site is the billboard on the east side of the CIIS Main Building, visible from the highly trafficked intersection of 10th and Mission Streets. Over the course of the year, we will feature the work of ten artists, both emerging and mid-career, starting with Wendel White, Cristina de Middel, and Glynnis Reed. This forum allows us to expand our audience while inserting art into a space typically used for advertising. The curatorial focus this year is on contemporary artists navigating ideas around landscape—a landscape of memory, an emotional landscape, or a landscape of collective history.
