LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Motorists in southern New Mexico are stumbling upon a series of puzzling billboards along highways and fear they’re warnings in hieroglyphics.

No, it’s just public art.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports (https://goo.gl/qOZxsG) the strange billboards with symbols are part of a moving gallery of contemporary pieces.

Samantha Frank, territorial director of the nonprofit organization Los Angeles Nomadic Division that promotes public art exhibitions, says the pieces are part of the Manifest Destiny Billboard Project.

He says it’s a series of artist-produced billboards and activations that will be shown along Interstate 10 from Jacksonville, Fla. to Los Angeles.

Motorist Craig Melton, who delivers business supplies, says he thought the billboards may be from the Islamic State group or “other subversives (who) might be trying to get at us.”
