Gigantic images of artwork are featured in New York's Times Square as part of the  Midnight Moment.

Begun in 2012, the program synchronizes the electronic billboards in the popular tourist destination to display art every night.

This three-minute program featured the art of Osgemeos, which translates as "The Twins" for the Brazilian brothers who create the art.

This is the City Outdoor sign showing an animated face as part of the exhibit.

Here, one of the animations emerges from the static on the screen to  almost reach out into the crowd. He also does this with a different background.

The credits signify the end of the Midnight Moment. After these finish displaying, the advertisements come back and the moment is over.
