Art + Public Outdoor Project = ArtPop!
Imagine your art on a 672-sf canvas that thousands of people throughout the Las Vegas valley will see each day. That is the dream-come-true reality if you are selected to be one of this year’s ArtPop artists. Your winning submission will appear on one of large format and digital billboards donated by our media partners, OUTFRONT Media and Lamar. This translates to a $54K value in advertising space and places your work in a one-of-a-kind, city-sized gallery that beautifies our city and makes art accessible to all. The delivery average for each billboard is 289,993 impressions per 4-weeks! Seven artists will be chosen & receive $500 from the City of Las Vegas office of Cultural Affairs.
When you become an ArtPop artist, you gain career-boosting exposure, and you also join a larger ArtPop family of artists and supporters who are passionate about advocating for local professional artists. Thank you for sharing your submission with us!
