Who We Are
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 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 we view every day.
NEW Interview With Artist
In the Photomontage series, Hediger explores internal human emotions, notions of the uncanny and the subconscious / conscious mind. Exploring the concept of the “Photomontage” as a ghostly apparition of living person, a feeling of claustrophobia and timelessness permeates the work. The hand of the artist is also readily apparent—in pencil marks, irregular cuts left exposed or hanging strings—drawing further attention to Hediger’s unusual angles and focal planes.Interview

Each of our exhibitions are headlined by one or more acclaimed guest artists. In addition to having their work featured on billboards throughout Los Angeles, these individuals help raise awareness and increase exposure for other TBC participants. Past guest artists have included Ed Ruscha, Lawrence Weiner, Marilyn Minter, Paul McCarthy, Alex Prager, Jack Pearson and Laurie Simmons.
TBC began with a single billboard and has grown to an average of 40 billboards per show. That wouldn't be possible without the help of our generous donors. TBC consists of an all-volunteer staff, so your donations go directly to producing art shows and bringing attention to artists. We are a tax deductible 501c3.Donate
