ArtPop Street Gallery
The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County has announced the winners of its 2019 ArtPop Street Gallery competition and released photographs of the art that will appear on billboards in the region this year. ArtPop fosters collaborations between arts organizations, such as The Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County, and the private sector to promote the work of local artists on available media space — on billboards, on the sides of buses, across news racks and in airport terminals. The visibility they receive boosts their careers.
Lamar Outdoor Advertising is donating unused space on five billboards over a 12-county region (Forsyth, Guilford, Montgomery, Stokes, Davidson, Surry, Davie, Yadkin, Alamance, Randolph, Rockingham, and Caswell). Billboard locations can be anywhere in the region for any length of time during the year. This is the third ArtPop collaborative since 2016 between the billboard industry and The Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County. Artists from the 12 counties were asked to submit billboard art for consideration. The winning artwork is now posted on billboards in the region.
Congratulations to the winners
