The Billboard Creative’s (TBC) curated shows place mass-scale works of art from on dozens of billboards throughout Los Angeles. To date, artwork in TBC’s shows, which include curated selections from emerging, mid-career, under-appreciated, and established artists, has been passed by cars more than 45 million times and appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Flaunt Magazine, the Huffington Post, NPR/KCRW’s Art Talk, Creators Project, and L’Oeil de la Photographie among numerous other publications.
Submissions are open through October 28, internationally to all art disciplines – if you can put it in a digital file we can put it on a billboard.
We design TBC shows as a traditional gallery show without constraints. With the city as the walls of our gallery, art is in public view 24/7 and reaches hundreds of thousands of people. Works selected for the 5th Annual Show will be mounted on billboards in Los Angeles for one month. Our mission is to maximize exposure to selected artists to art professionals, curators, collectors, galleries, museums and the community at large.
- Billboards are placed, in high-traffic locations and art-centric neighborhoods, including near galleries, museums, and arts districts.
- All billboards are documented and images are available to both media and the artists for use in social media, websites, newsletters etc.
- The show is supported with a smart phone map (using MapMe) of all the locations. Users can plot their course, get direction and info about the artist, images and links to their websites.
- We work with industry leaders like Third Eye (2018) to promote the show and have had articles about the show and our artists pick-up by Huffington Post, LA Times, Creators Project, Art Talk just to name a few.
We are excited to announce that Christopher Vroom, founder of Artadia, a non-profit that identifies innovative visual artists and supports them with grants and opportunities to connect with arts institutions, fairs, and curators, has signed on to curate this show. Now in its 20th year, Artadia has provided nearly $7 million of support to U.S. artists. Other arts ventures founded by Christopher include Art+Culture Projects and Artspace.com, organizations that work to broaden awareness of the artists while creating sustainable sources of income for both artists and the programs showcasing their work, and his most recent endeavor, CollectorIQ, a sales platform for fine art.
There is a $27 dollar fee for first image $7.00 for each additional image up to 9 images.
