Park Pictures

North Carolina Museum of Art

Park Pictures are three large-scale outdoor billboards (each 5 by 12 feet) in three locations along the greenway in the Ann and Jim Goodnight Museum Park. They are changed approximately every six months to feature different artists. The commissioned artwork is digitally printed on vinyl banners and affixed to the aluminum panels of the sign structures. For production the artists provide the sign vendor with a digital file. The sign vendor prints and installs the vinyl banners.
