The DeLand Fall Festival of the Arts has brought a new arts program to the Central Florida area. ArtPop Central Florida will shine the spotlight on talented local artists throughout the year by displaying their artwork on digital and vinyl billboards that are seen by thousands of local residents and visitors. The first official ArtPop program was launched in Charlotte, NC in January of 2014 with 20 local artist’s works displayed on available billboard space. To date 80 artists have been featured on the streets of Charlotte, NC. ArtPop is now on the streets of 10 different cities across the country with at least 20 more to come in 2016-2017.
The art works are chosen from a group of submitted entries by artists. A winning artists. Other images are chosen by a public popular vote. Each billboard includes the artist’s work along with their name. A page on the Fall Festival website will feature the billboard locations, the artists and a link to each artist’s site. The art is placed on OUTFRONT Media billboards for one year in various locations throughout the Central Florida area.
ArtPop Central Florida is a Deland Fall Festival of the Arts initiative which could not have been done without the generous support of OUTFRONT Media. OUTFRONT Media provides all of the billboards in the 14 county area that is covered by the program. We are also indebted to the Founder of ArtPop…Wendy Hickey…who made this program available to us.
