Back with a vengeance is By The Way with episode #13 “52 & They Art All Against You”.  On this episode listen to Eric Wall and Ando discuss what may become the largest US public art project ever. The political Super Pac For Freedoms launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kick Starter to fund 52 billboards by major contemporary artists as a “get out to vote” initiative ahead of the 2018 mid-term elections. Listen in on their conversation as I think it might surprise the you where Eric and Ando stand regarding the project.
