Mark Oberndorf

New Jersey artist Mark Oberndorf is doing something of a community service with his work by preserving endangered landscapes in his paintings.

He’s also participating in a contest that I find very interesting; apparently, a car insurance company in New Jersey has decided to turn the highways into gallery space by putting artwork on billboards.  While I have a hard time not being skeptical of insurance companies in general, I do think this is a potentially great thing.  I wouldn’t mind seeing a little more art and a little less advertising on the billboards around here.
