The New York State Thruway Project, Social Issue Signage Disguised as Historical Markers

Back in 2010 we wrote about the “I-75 Project”: artist Norm Magnusson’s series of signs that masqueraded as historical markers but displayed messages about contemporary social issues. Magnusson now hopes to repeat the project in New York with his “New York State Thruway Project.” He proposes to install his signs, addressing issues like immigration, health care, and global warming, at each of the 27 travel plazas in the thruway system. Magnusson is raising funds for the project on Kickstarter.
