ABOUT THE BILLBOARD EXHIBITION
Launching in January 2022 is a brand new initiative called the Corridor Project Billboard Exhibition. Modeled after the successful Billboard Creative in Los Angeles and Sonora 128 in Mexico City, this sky-high exhibition will feature the artwork of 30 artists from regions along the I4 corridor. The Downtown Arts District (DAD) is working with Pat Greene, founder of The Corridor Project, to select artists and artwork for this exhibition. Eleven artists have been pre-selected by Greene. The remaining 19 artists will be selected through applications from an open call facilitated by DAD.
In partnership with Clear Channel Outdoor, each artist will be featured on one printed billboard in the region (12” h x 25” w poster), and all of the artwork will rotate on digital billboards continuously through the month of January 2022.
This is an incredible opportunity for both DAD and all the artists involved. The Corridor Project Billboard Exhibition will increase visibility and awareness of what the Central Florida creative community has to offer because it actively engages tourists and locals as they are driving around Orlando and I4.
On January 20, 2022, there will be an Opening Night Reception at CityArts to unveil the artwork from the billboards. This in-person exhibition will run from January 20 - February 13, 2022.
