Help Times Square become Art Square

It might sound like the classic David and Goliath story, but a group of creative professionals is dead set on taking over all the advertisements in Times Square for an entire day. Artist Justus Bruns is trying to change they way we think about public art, and his Times Square to Art Square (TS2AS) project is starting to gain momentum.

The TS2AS group is fundraising, not to buy out advertisers or billboards, but to raise awareness and build an interactive iPhone app that will illustrate their goal. Check out their FAQ for more information, and make a donation (or just help spread the word) if you believe in the cause. [via TBD]
