Billboards as art

A few days ago, I posted something about St. Paul’s continuing battle to get rid of billboards.

A link sent to me by The Current’s Barb Abney today, however, reminds me that sometimes billboards can be public art:


A few years ago the Walker commissioned five artists to create billboard art, and it turned out to be nowhere near as interesting as when the professionals are unleashed.

Besides, St. Paul, today’s eyesore might be tomorrow’s art exhibit.
