Boston’s latest installment of larger than life art is back at the Boston Exhibition and Convention Center (BCEC). The second installment of “Art on the Marquee” features 10 new artists whose work will be displayed on the Convention Center’s 80-foot-tall, 3,000-square-foot, outdoor digital display screens.
Beginning Sunday, May 20th, the entire collection of spring art will be displayed on the marquee from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., and continue on May 27th, as well as all Sundays in June and July, with the exception of July 22nd.
“By broadcasting this amazing media art as part of our marquee content, we hope to provide a model for future signage and urban screens in both Boston and North America – pushing the marquee content in new and unexplored directions that will please our guests and events while helping establish this program as one of the most creative and iconic in the country,” says James E. Rooney on the website, executive director of the MCCA.
Art on the Marquee is a result of a partnership between Boston Cyberarts and the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority, a move that brings artists’ works to over 100,000 people who pass by the screens on a daily basis.
Check out the works from the Spring 2012 Artists on the Marquee below, as well as a description from the Art on the Marquee of what the works represent. Of course, you must head over to the BCEC to view their works of art on the big screen to truly take the exhibit in!
