The Arts & Science Councils is partnering with Adams Outdoor Advertising in effort to enhance the cultural experience of motorists on local highways and byways in the new year.

 

ASC has announced the launch of ArtPop, a program in which 20 local artists, who are selected through a competitive submission and jurying process, will have their work displayed on billboards in the area.

 

Billboard installations will begin the week of Jan. 6, and selected artwork will be displayed throughout the year.   

 

“This is a great way for local artists to gain broader exposure within the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community,” said ASC Vice President of Cultural & Community Investment Katherine Mooring. “It’s also an exciting way for us to partner with a local business to promote art and creativity.”

 

Individual artists from any discipline and who live or work in Mecklenburg County can apply to participate at ArtsandScience.org/art-pop. The deadline for all submissions is 12 p.m. Nov. 1, and there is no cost for entry.

 

A jury composed of local arts and design experts will select the top 25 submissions. Artists ranked among the top 15 submissions will automatically receive invitations to participate. The remaining 10 submissions will be put to a public vote on CharlotteCultureGuide.com from Nov. 25 through Dec. 1, with the top five vote-getters to be selected as the final five participants. Selected program artists will be announced in December.
