The Billboard Creative

a Los Angeles-based nonprofit on a mission to bring work by emerging and underrepresented artists into unexpected paths of Angelenos. Through the annual billboard exhibition, artist grant program, and artist interviews series, The Billboard Creative presents multiple platforms that focus on amplifying the voices of artists outside the mainstream spotlight.
"The Billboard Creative celebrates artists from all walks of life and creates a supportive platform for artists to share their work at the massive billboard scale with the city of Los Angeles." Mona Kuhn Curator

10-Year Anniversary Show

We are thrilled to announce the upcoming 10th anniversary show March 2024. When we started out with a test of a single board, followed shortly by our first show with 14 boards, we never dreamed of the growth The Billboard Creative has experienced. Eleven shows, hundereds of boards from artists around the globe, and more then 83 million views of TBC artists' work.
