About the Project

In the summer of 1994, The 42nd Street Art Project once again transformed Manhattan’s Times Square into a bustling, 24/7 gallery of contemporary art. Works by twenty-five artists, architects, and designers once transformed storefronts and display windows, billboards and theater marquees, security gates, and sidewalks.


These temporary, site-specific installations included a mysterious curtain of rain falling continuously from a theater marquee, a Pop Art-influenced mock automat, a bevy of juvenile robots programmed to prey on passersby, and numerous murals, sculptures, and interactive media works.
