Deadline extended until June 3 at 12pm

ArtPop, the popular public art competition which debuted in 2014, is back to shine the spotlight on the talented local artists in the Piedmont Triad by showcasing their work on Lamar Outdoor Advertising billboards throughout the region. In 2019, five artists’ works will be featured on billboards circulating throughout the region during the year. 

Call is open to the artists residing in the following counties: Forsyth, Guilford, Montgomery, Stokes, Davidson, Surry, Davie, Yadkin, Alamance, Randolph, Rockingham, or Caswell County.

Artists who wish to enter the ArtPop competition should visit intothearts.org/artpop to apply, keeping in mind the very strict adherence to the required billboard size. Two-dimensional art and photographs of three-dimensional art that fit these measurements are acceptable. Five artists

will be juried, which can include one high school student. High school seniors may apply without meeting the other criteria, however, they must be attending college for visual art.

All selected artists will be invited to participate in ArtistsU is an incubator for changing the working conditions of artists. It is a course in the business of art. For more information on ArtistsU, please visit ArtistsU.org. This is made possible through the generous donation from Anna Reilly and Matthew Cullinan, as well as a $500 scholarship for the selected high school student. 

See all of the ArtPop winners across the country by visiting ArtPopStreetGallery.com.
