Art in Ad Places is a public service, a campaign replacing outdoor advertising with artwork. We partner with artists to install their work in payphones across New York City. We began in 2017, installing new artwork every week for a year.

 

We believe...

Outdoor advertising is visual pollution.
Outdoor advertising can be psychologically damaging.
Outdoor advertising is pushed on viewers without their consent.
Outdoor advertising marks underutilized venues for other messages.
By replacing advertisements with artwork, Art in Ad Places provides a public service and alternative vision of our public environment.

 

The Latest

Every week in 2017, we installed a poster somewhere in New York City. Now, we're planning next steps.
