Cheryl Pope Takes Part in Art in Ad Places Project

Faculty member in the Contemporary Practices department Cheryl Pope (BFA 2003, MDes 2010) was part of a yearlong guerrilla project that replaced New York City advertising with art. The project Art in Ad Places has now blossomed into a book and exhibition of photographs of the public art shot by street art photographer Luna Park. While most of the artworks featured were not specifically about advertising, they indirectly addressed its ubiquity by virtue of their placement, explains Hyperallergic. Pope’s work was a red, white, and blue banner that read “I hate the sound of silence.” Read more about the project, the book, and exhibition here.
