Overpass Light Brigade during Digital Billboard Art Month

About the artists: The Overpass Light Brigade displays short and succinct political slogans and progressive concerns to passersby in the nocturnal urban landscape. Their very affordable and easily replicated technology—DIY LED lighted letters—has been emulated by people around the country, creating the rapidly growing Light Brigade Network.

INOVA presents the work of Overpass Light Brigade as part of the city-wide Digital Billboard Art Month (DBAM) organized by IN:SITE. This special program brings art from Milwaukee artists and arts organizations to prominent sites in the public eye. A reception at INOVA on October 2 includes presentations about IN:SITE’s DBAM initiative. The reception is co-sponsored by Creative Alliance Milwaukee.
