Now in its seventh iteration, The Billboard Creative (TBC) is pleased to present a new exhibition opening on April 5 that features the work of 30 emerging and established artists on 30 billboards across Los Angeles. TBC turns billboard advertising spaces into open-air art exhibitions for all Angelenos. The exhibited works are selected through a curated, blind-submission process open to all, and shown alongside selected guest artists. This year’s show includes works from guest artists Ramiro Gomez, Phung Huynh, Narsiso Martinez, and Calida Rawles.
“The Billboard Creative expands the audience for fine art into the public realm, exposing new artists to Los Angeles drivers and pedestrians alike,” said show curator Victoria Burns. “This exhibition is meant to be thought-provoking and addresses some of the most important issues of our time through a variety of artistic voices.”
“Since launching The Billboard Creative in 2014, our goals have always been to provide emerging and underrepresented artists with a platform to elevate their profile through massive exposure and to bring art to the public via billboards,” says TBC Founder and Executive Director Adam Santelli. “With Los Angeles museums closed to the public for roughly a year due to the pandemic, now is more important than ever to continue to bring this art experience to the streets and create an opportunity for Angelenos to discover their new favorite artists.”
To date, TBC has hung nearly 200 billboards featuring the work of artists from around the globe and has generated over 40 million outdoor impressions.
The exhibition runs April 5–30, 2021, please note that artworks will start being placed on billboards on April 5 and all will be on display by April 9. To view the interactive map with billboard locations and artist details visit https://viewer.mapme.
