Jean M. Judd of Cushing, Wisconsin to be featured on electronic bulletin board in Atlanta

Textile artist Jean M. Judd of Cushing, Wisconsin will have six of her textile artworks featured on an electronic bulletin board in Atlanta, Georgia. The Billboard Art Project is a special project started in 2010 to feature artists’ work on electronic billboards in select cities across the USA.
Artworks by Ms. Judd to be featured on the billboard from September 29 to October 26, 2012 include: Art Deco #1, Contaminated Water #6: Suspended Particles, Flaming Grapes, Fractured ‘Gello #1, Rusted Grapes and Scribble #2: Black Pathways. 
 This billboard is located right behind a Citgo Station on Peachtree Road NE. The board faces north, so you see it while driving southbound right around 2064 Peachtree Road NE. The images will change on the billboard every 6 to 10 seconds depending on the local department of motor vehicle's regulations.
A few days before the exhibition starts on the electronic billboard, the names of the featured artists and their web sites will be available on line at this web site: http://billboardartproject.org/cities/atlanta.html
The Billboard Art Project is a nonprofit organization that acquires digital billboards normally used for advertising and repurposes them as roadside galleries. The organization shows projects in cities all over the country, and the projects are open to all individuals and groups who are interested in participating.
