2015 ArtPop Billboard Winners Announced (See Pics)

The ArtPop program, which uses local artists’ work to fill billboards, announced its 2015 selections today. Twenty artists will have their work displayed next year. Fourteen were chosen by a jury of experts in art and design; six were chosen by a public vote.

The Arts & Science Council and Adams Outdoor Advertising are the team behind the program, first partnering in 2014.“Adams Outdoor Advertising provides the billboard space and ASC covers the production costs of reproducing selected artists’ images on vinyl to fit the billboards,” a release says.
