NYC student art getting Times Square exposure
NEW YORK (AP) — Some lucky New York City public school students are getting the chance to see their works of art among the lights of Times Square.
The Times Square Advertising Coalition says 23 student artworks are going up on two giant digital billboards between 43rd and 44th streets Wednesday afternoon.
A three-minute video will play hourly and show each work individually through Sunday.
The artworks were selected from 89 works on view at the annual juried exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art of public school students' art work.
The exhibition is called "P.S. Art 2016: Celebrating the Creative Spirit of NYC Kids." It runs through Oct. 23.
It's a project of the city Department of Education, the Met and Studio in a School.
