smart: The Future of The City NYC Preview
Under the slogan “The Future of the City”, car manufacturer smart has teamed up with six of New York’s hottest magazines to put on a big time initiative. Six walls, measuring up to 260 m2, have been transformed into screens for visions of the future. The hand- painted, photorealistic murals will be on show between September 1st and October 31st, 2010 in SoHo and Brooklyn. Responsible for their creation are six New York publications – City, Dossier Journal, Nylon, Pin-Up, Theme and Z!nk – which focus on fashion, design, architecture and art, and offer an expert eye on the city’s latest trends. The art works were created in collaboration with established artists such as Andy J. Miller for Nylon and Kenzo Minami for Theme, as well as up-and-coming artists like Josh Slater for Dossier Journal. A preview is what’s smart has in store is offered above. Enjoy!
