NEW YORK, Aug 7 (Reuters) – From the stern couple in
“American Gothic” displayed at a bus station in New York to the
colorful flags in “Allies Day” over an intersection in Chicago,
paintings are popping up everywhere in what is billed as the
world’s largest art show.
“Art Everywhere US,” which was launched this week and runs
through Aug. 31, features reproductions of 58 classic and
contemporary American paintings, including works by Grant Wood,
Childe Hassam and Winslow Homer, displayed on public spaces in
cities and rural areas normally reserved for advertising.
