Over at Animal, Will Sherman files a post-mortem on the weekend's anti-ad-creep shenanigans, which saw artists "reclaim" some 120 billboards (Yes, Williamsburg was involved): "Once the buffers were finished painting over the ad blight, over 50 artists (of which only 1 was arrested) moved in to transform the newly created public canvasses into works of art. While my colleague was buffing the billboards, I was indiscriminately shooting the action, including the best part: the artists, who used posters, paint, and even performance art in their creative reclamations."
