Here are the second 3 pieces by @whoisdamaster, from his Stranger Fruit series. Here’s what Jon had to say about these works. “This work, Stranger Fruit, is about the mother/son bond in the wake of the murders of African American men due to police violence. How can a mother protect her children when those who are sworn to protect are the ones committing the crimes? The mothers in these images have not lost their sons, but know the reality, that without addressing this epidemic, this could happen to them. I'm participating in Art in Ad Places because art is for all, and should not be limited to the confines of a gallery. This is for the people, to absorb, to engage with, or be confronted by." - #JonHenry

And we’re back, in a slightly new form! #ArtInAdPlaces is still installing new work, but we want to focus on working with people to install a series of work, rather than last year’s one-offs. We’re starting off this new format with 6 pieces by @whoisdamaster, from his Stranger Fruit series. Here’s the first 3. "This work, Stranger Fruit, is about the mother/son bond in the wake of the murders of African American men due to police violence.

This weekend, anti-advertising activists around the world came together for the second annual #SubvertTheCity, a weekend of action to reclaim public space organized by #SubvertisersInternational. So, we thought we'd join in the fun, so we put up work by #SpecialPatrolGroup, @JonBurgerman, @_Sheryo & @_TheYok, @MollyCrabapple, and @JessXSnow.

#AdTakeover 52 of 52: "Jealous Lover 1" by @heatherbenjamin_

#HeatherBenjamin says, "I think it’s easy to experience a sort of tunnel vision when you’re running around in the city, it can be a kind of natural response to all the over-stimulation. But that can cause you to miss things going on around you that could be fresh opportunities for critical thinking or raw emotional reactions. Those could be moments where you might begin to think about something in a different way, or feel inspired, and at a basic level have a visual experience really resonate with you in some way. Public art is one of those things that can jolt you right out of your comfort zone and turn everything upside down for a few minutes, while you try take in and wrestle with something you weren’t expecting to see. And I think having that experience on a regular basis is an important part of feeling connected to the humans around you and their lives and emotions and experiences, how you can relate to them. That’s why I’m psyched on the #ArtInAdPlaces project and excited to be a part of it, it’s actively creating spaces in the city for those moments to happen. We need more of those opportunities and less visual stimuli that are just meant to force us into more consumerism." Photo by @lunapark

#AdTakeover 51 of 52 comes from @0uizi aka #LouiseChen, who says "Rather than stopping to smell a flower, would you prefer to peer into it's soul? One of the reasons I make my art public is that it seems to give people a sense of pride and security in their surroundings. This project in particular does this by making an extra-ordinary space feel extraordinary." Photo by @lunapark
