PUBLIC ART, DISPLAYED IN A QUINTESSENTIAL LOS ANGELES MEDIUM.
Our fifth show hits the streets of LA on October and will feature works from emerging and established artists including Lawrence Weiner, Marilyn Minter, Laurie Simmons, and Spencer Tunick.
The Billboard Creative connects artists with mass audiences on the streets of LA, bringing art into the daily routines of hundreds of thousands of Angelenos.

The Billboard Creative (TBC) is a non-profit organization that turns billboards into public art sites. Our goal in this work is two-fold: To help emerging and underrepresented artists break through traditional career bottlenecks by providing exposure to a mass audience and raising their profile with the public and the arts community, and to bring art to city streets making it as accessible as the numerous billboards that we view everyday.
The Billboard Art Project: Once a year TBC produces an open submission billboard show. The Billboard Art Project. Its open internationally to emerging and mid-career artists working in all disciplines. The show has been covered in the Huffington Post, NPR, LATIMES just to name a few.
