What's up with new billboards?


This is southbound on I-95, just south of the Golden Glades. There are at least four of these billboards in a row, all currently painted black. Brook Dorsch claims that these are all brand new (like, in the past year). Can anyone confirm or deny, and if so, wtf, we have too many billboards already?

Speaking of Dorsch, he was just profiled in OceanDrive magazine. And another thing: Subtropics was hosted at the gallery last year, before the Carnival Center opened. This year the festival was in the center’s studio theater. Does that make Dorsch Gallery the second best venue for experimental music in town?

    No just brand new… I watched them get installed starting about 2 months prior to the Superbowl…

    There are about 4 or 5 right in a row that were installed at the same time. I hate these things!!!

    Aha — the Superbowl! That makes perfect sense, and it’s another reason to hate professional sports to boot! Thanks!

    As if the view from I-95 is being spoiled by these things… if anything the billboards distract from the commercial/industrial clutter along the interstate.

    Not too long before we start seeing full video billboards down here.

    Watch Overtown. Driving on 95 Overtown will be all illegal billboards. Miami Commissioner likes billboards. Money to her friends, pollution to her enemies.

    Miami Commissioner Spence-Jones loves billboards. Can we say campaign contributions?
