Censorship Alert

A billboard that was supposed to show the so-called Big Three (Ford, GM, and Chrysler) working together has been edited so that the Auto Maker's logos are removed. Now it looks like three nondescript company-less evil villains making mystery soup. The project's website explains, "The billboard company felt that displaying the painting could produce negative consequences for them, and required us to cover the logos. Needless to say, we’re disappointed in the censorship, but we committed finishing the project and giving opportunity for the discussion to take place regarding freedom of expression, trademarks, and the use of billboards for noncommercial purposes."
