Well, sort of. This morning, Chuck Close unveiled four taxi-top billboards, two featuring his artwork, two sporting painter Kehind Wiley's pieces, making for quite the pleasant change from the usual gentleman's clubs ads we're used to. The works are part of ART ADDS, an exhibition curated by Art Production Fund intended to bring public art to the city's streets. Throughout January, 500 taxi tops donated by Show Media will switch out art for advertisements, meaning over 5 million New Yorkers will get a speeding hit of culture. Sure beats Scores.
