Take to the streets and experience art in LA at the Billboard Creative public art show.
This is the inaugural show from The Billboard Creative, a non-profit founded in 2014 with the goals of giving artists access to a mass audience and to make art as accessible to Angelenos as the numerous billboards that they view everyday.

“This is a grass-roots, volunteer-driven organization that is all about helping artists get their work exhibited to broad audiences and making art a part of the daily lives of more people,” said Adam Santelli, TBC’s founder. “I found out about remnant billboards last year and did a test and it was amazing to see pedestrians do double takes and come back to view the work. If we can get more artists’ work out there, and have people who are walking and driving around LA pause and think ‘what is that – that’s interesting or cool or beautiful,’ we’ll consider the show a success.”
