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.

Projects

The Billboard
Exhibition

TBC produces an annual, month-long exhibition on the streets of Los Angeles. For over 6 years, we have carefully curated and hung work on a massive scale throughout the city, with our billboards being viewed more than 1.2 million times. Celebrating emerging and mid-career artists from around the globe, the show is open to submissions across all disciplines.

Micro Documentaries

Preparing for our annual exhibition is a year-round process, allowing us to develop relationships with artists from all corners of the globe. Beginning last year, we added yet another channel for connecting audiences and creators, documenting the process and philosophy of five artists with filmmaker Sam Vladimirsky. We look forward to adding three new documentaries to this series in 2020.

Guest Artists
Program

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.

Support

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.
