Enlisting the crowds to turn Times Square into Art Square

Demonstrating Broadway-sized ambition, a group of (mostly Dutch) bloggers and designers aims to turn New York’s Times Square into a huge public art show. The goal of Times Square to Art Square / TS2AS is as straightforward as it is lofty: instead of broadcasting commercial messages, the Times Square billboards should beam out artwork. TS2AS, which just launched, is currently asking artists to upload images and videos to its Flickr and Vimeo pools. Next come the crowd and money parts: the artists’ fans are requested to donate money for billboard time, buying their artist a few minutes of jumbotron bandwidth.
