#AdTakeover 33 of 52 comes from #AndreaSonnenberg aka @teenwitchsf "In a world absolutely suffocated with advertisements, I think the message of Art in Ad Places is crucially important. 
If I could distract or inspire people from the norm of their consumer-driven lives, even for just a fleeting moment, I think it makes a difference." - Andrea Sonnenberg

#AdTakeover 32 of 52: #GraceMiceli aka @artbabygirl "This piece is about all of the things that make my brain feel good when I see them. I’m interested in co-opting the imagery of products we consume and using them to connect with you." - #artbabygirl

#AdTakeover 31 of 52: "Hope and Promise" (2014) by @jamelshabazz "As an artist, it is my responsibility to use my gift to create images that provoke thought and inspire positive change. I accepted the invitation to participate in Art in Ad Places, due to the ever growing divide and escalation of hate crimes in this country. The image I selected represents the innocence of children in a world full of uncertainty. It is my hope that this photograph will inspire tolerance, empathy, and compassion." - #JamelShabazz

#AdTakeover 30 of 52: "Blue Lady" by @heyparkerday "Ads tell you what to think; art inspires you to think for yourself. Art in Ad Places is helping shift the paradigm of imagery in the public space. I hope my work Blue Lady surprises and delights people who wouldn't otherwise find my work." - #ParkerDay

Ad Takeover 29 of 52 - Plate 73: It is better to be lazy. by @e_elombardo "I contributed Plate 73: It is better to be lazy. from The Caprichos, 80 etchings after Goya’s Los Caprichos, to be included in Art in Ad Places as a continuation of the tradition of social critique through art started by Goya in 1799. Los Caprichos, often considered the first work of modern art, was a major departure from Goya’s work as a court painter in Spain. With the aim of making this work accessible to the Spanish people he released the work for sale in a perfume shop. The work cleverly exposes the glut, excess and oppression the upper/religious class imposed on the people. Unfortunately these themes reach across history into our present day, which inspired me to recreate this work through a queer feminist lens. "I was compelled to work with Art in Ad Places because these ad spaces are used to distract us from the real issues of our time. Just as the couple floats on an oil barrel toasting with champagne, they are blind to the issues of global warming and rising sea levels. Corporate ads try to transport us into this fantasyland of luxury. This work and the actions of Art in Ad Placesargues: Luxury=Death…is it better to be lazy?" - #EmilyLombardo

Ad Takeover 28 of 52: @SamHorine "I'm participating in the Art in Ad Places project because I love the subtlety of it - in so many ways we are bombarded by calls to action and attention by ads every single day and so for this project I chose an image that visually meant nothing - an out of focus image of Manhattan's fabled meatpacking neighborhood - a neighborhood itself so transformed as to be nearly unrecognizable from how I remember it. The image itself is meant to be an abstraction, a color palette, something that you could easily pass by and never notice or something that could stop you and pull you in as you attempt to make sense of the scene." - #SamHorine

#AdTakeover 27 of 52: "Circadia" by @amysol. "While painting this piece, I imagined being emerged in a place of solitude and peace. It is the kind of space that most often can only be created within ourselves; when the outside world does not provide it. I choose this piece for Art in Ad places because it is quiet and gentle, it is unobtrusively there for those who want to observe it. I hoped this would translate in a busy metropolis as a sort of respite from the noise, and maybe even a gateway for daydreaming." - #AmySol

#AdTakeover 26 of 52: "Sic Semper Tyrannis" by @allisonsommers. "I'm so happy to have the opportunity to participate-- it's thrilling to see work in a new context, outside of expected norms of legitimization (that is, hanging on a white wall, framed, understood as certain object). I like that it's a little confusing. And I feel very strongly about wiggling in weird things to counter, or at least briefly interrupt, the ubiquity of capitalist messaging. Bludgeon folks with something else for a moment." - #AWSommers

#AdTakeover 24 of 52: "HOODED" by @goldenpolaroid. "I'm participating in Art in Ad Places because I think that it's a really cool idea to replace the overwhelming nature of advertisement that we encounter everyday with great art. The work that I've decided to contribute to this project is about reshaping the representations of black males." -Myles Loftin

#AdTakeover 23 of 52: "No Te Olvides" by @innamost. "For Art in Ad Places, I’ve reimagined the first Puerto Rican flag, 'The Revolutionary Flag of Lares,' with black, red, and green, the colors of the Black Liberation flag. At a time when Puerto Rico is struggling due to economic neglect from the United States, on the weekend of New York City’s Puerto Rican Day parade, I consider remembrance and imagination as a piece of the solution for the people." - #JonathanGardenhire
