Art continues to grace billboards

COMMERCIAL billboards across Europe have once again given way to art as the second annual Billboart Gallery Europe exhibition has started.
According to Mira Keratová, the general coordinator of this international project, its aim is to bring contemporary art closer to the viewer and consequently build permanent billboard galleries in Europe's busiest localities.
The Slovak portion of the project will see commercial adds on billboards substituted by art at five places in Bratislava's centre (Brnenská and Šancova Streets, Americké námestie), and on the Danube riverbank Nábrežie L Svobodu and Vajanského nábrežie.
