Museum Monday: Organized by the Outdoor Advertising Association of America and various museum directors nationwide, Art Everywhere is a public art project slated to begin this summer. As Carol Vogel discusses in a recent New York Times article, the project will involve “images by dozens of famous American artists…[and] 50,000 displays from electronic billboards to bus shelters, an initiative by leading museums and the billboard industry to create one of the largest outdoor art exhibitions seen in the country.” 

Beginning today and continuing through May 7, the public can vote for their favorite artworks among 100 selections at ArtEverywhereUS.org

Pictured above are short-listed works by artists who are represented by Pace Gallery: Mark Rothko's White Center (1957) from LACMA; Chuck Close's Phil (1969) from the Whitney Museum; Willem de Kooning's Excavation (1950) from the Art Institute of Chicago; de Kooning's Montauk Highway (1958) from LACMA; and Elizabeth Murray's Children Meeting (1978) from the Whitney Museum.
