The I-75 Project is a public art installation from Norm Magnusson.

“Are they real?” is a question viewers frequently ask, meaning “are they state-sponsored?” Magnusson loves this confusion and hopes to slip a message in while people are mulling it over.
These markers are just the kind of public art he really enjoys: gently assertive and non-confrontational, firmly thought-provoking and pretty to look at and just a little bit subversive.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am now head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
