The Billboard Creative's goal is to help emerging and underrepresented artists break through traditional career bottlenecks by raising their profile in a massive way - as part of LA's annual billboard exhibition.
We sat down with artist Allegra Jones at her home in Highland Park, LA. Allegra is a multidisciplinary artist working with drawing, painting, animation, graphic design, and music. We spoke about her path to finding an artistic voice that weaves through all of these mediums, and how the BLM movement completely altered her creative output and purpose. We also explored the themes surrounding her last painting show at Five Car Garage.
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.
