An eighth billboard, also up throughout the month of April, has been dedicated to the memory of School of Art senior Jee Hoon Choi, who was tragically killed in a car accident on March 25, 2011.
Lamar Outdoor Advertising continues their generous support by providing this public, non-traditional venue for student work to be recognized, studied and critiqued by thousands of viewers.
The 2011 School of Art billboard project is coordinated by Ayanah Moor, Associate Professor of Art. Collaboration with Lamar Outdoor Advertising was initiated in 2007 by Christopher Sperandio, former Kraus Visiting Assistant Professor of Art at Carnegie Mellon.
