The AIGANY Mentoring Program works on one large project per year. This year we are developing billboards for a digital display in Times Square. Challenges include developing concepts related to each students personal feelings on tolerance while thinking about the audience and displaying the piece in the public realm.
Each student is creating digital artwork that will be displayed in an exhibit and some students work will be selected to be displayed in Times Square on the Clear Channel Spectacolor billboard.
