The video screen will combine a variety of programming types, such as commercial advertising, sponsorships, content concerning regional and municipal cultural affairs, and a fine arts element. The purpose of this Call for Submissions is to investigate the arts programming that is available, such as but not limited to art films, video art, computer-generated and animated art, or other forms of new media. Please note that we are not looking for images of art to be shown in a slideshow. Also, the video screen will have no audio capabilities.
