From December 4, 2000 to January 31, 2001, Creative Time exhibited the final work of artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Untitled (1995). Displayed on billboards in multiples of six, this public art project featured an image of a bird in flight on 24 billboards throughout four of the five boroughs of New York City.
