Signs, a public art project by artist and designer Ryan McGinness, features funky street signs fabricated and installed by the New York City Department of Transportation all around downtown NYC.

The project includes fifty signs installed and displayed around the Manhattan area until the end of the month. The signs were installed on traffic light posts and lamp posts along the route of the city’s Summer Streets program, a weekly event where about seven miles of NYC’s streets are closed off to allow people to freely and safely run, walk, bike and play.

The fifty signs are made of vinyl on aluminum and were manufactured and published by the DOT itself. The signs feature various contemporary designs in black, red, and white. The artist identifies each sign as a number and he also includes whimsical descriptions for each of the design on his website.
