The ongoing show in Chicago started Monday, September 26, 2011 and runs until Sunday, October 23rd: four weeks of art interspersed among advertising (location: East Bound Interstate 90 just after the highway crosses over Oakton Street).
Here are some photos of the billboards with my images. They were recently posted by the Billboard Art Project on Facebook. More photos can be seen here. And more will be posted soon, as the BAP is documenting the event through the weeks.

I am very much enjoying continuing the "Mileage To" series and seeing the photos taken in a new town and offering a different context and a different perspective each time. 

For Chicago I sent to the BAP a series of 31 signs with mileage from Chicago to towns situated in North African and Middle Eastern countries: Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Pakistan, Bahrain, Syria, Tunisia, Palestine, Israel,Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon. The same towns I've made road signs with for the Savannah and the Duluth Billboard Art Project. Each time I recalculate the distances online, it makes each sign specific for each location.


For the show in Chicago I sent a series of 36 new faux signs, playing with the two colors of the warning signs: bright yellow for the background and black for the abstract shapes.
