This April, Times Square Arts’ Midnight Moment series will celebrate its 10th anniversary. As the world’s largest and longest running-digital public art exhibition, Midnight Moment features a monthly video synchronized across 90 electronic billboards throughout Times Square each day from 11:57 p.m. to midnight. In honor of this occasion, Midnight Moment will present a special program featuring the video work of twelve women over the following year through March 2023. 

Through these videos, Times Square Arts will pay homage to the female administrators, artists, and programmers whose work has been influential in staging public art takeovers in Times Square since the 1980s. During the month of April, the video on display will be Wolf Lights by Joan Jonas, which depicts a female figure in a paper-mache wolf mask moving gracefully across the backdrop of Las Vegas.
