‘Art on the Marquee’ inspires and challenges
Review of the towering marquee at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center
The marquee at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center in South Boston is 80 feet tall and oddly shaped, with seven screens in all. It provides a terrific opportunity and a head-scratching challenge for video artists who want to show their work there. The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority invited Boston Cyberarts to program the art content on the marquee, and now video art, collectively titled ‘’Art on the Marquee,’’ runs on a loop with ads and convention center information.
