“BOSTON – The Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics (MONUM) and Boston Art Commission are proud to announce the winners of “Fenway’s 30 Second Cinema,” a digital art competition which gives Boston-area artists the opportunity to display their work on a prominent digital sign next to Fenway Park.
MONUM and the Boston Art Commission asked artists to submit their digital art, such as motion graphics and short films, up to 30 seconds long. Representatives of MONUM and the Mayor’s Office of Arts + Culture judged the submissions
“Fenway’s 30 Second Cinema competition is a terrific opportunity for Boston-area digital artists to showcase their work to thousands of residents and visitors in a high-visibility public space,” said Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “The high quality of these submissions speaks to the overwhelming talent and creative vision in the City of Boston that will make one of Boston’s most beloved streets even more dynamic.”
Twelve winners were selected and will have their pieces displayed on the Orange Barrel Media digital sign at the intersection of Ipswich and Lansdowne Streets starting today. The winning submissions will be displayed every hour for 30 seconds between regular advertising programming on the digital sign (14 feet high by 48 feet wide). In addition, the City will award the winning artists $300.
“Fenway’s 30-Second Cinema” is part of a host of initiatives from the City of Boston to engage and highlight Boston’s creative community in public spaces. Recent activities include the Boston Art Commission’s Pop-Up! Dudley Connections (http://www.cityofboston.gov/news/Default.aspx?id=14764) a pop-up art series in Dudley Square, and the Public Space Invitational (http://www.cityofboston.gov/news/Default.aspx?id=10651), a civic design competition that invited artists, designers, and engineers to rethink Boston’s public spaces.
