The first billboard art program ran in 2001 in the Pocono Mountain Adams market through a partnership with Adams Outdoor Advertising and the Monroe County Arts Council.  The name ArtPop is made up of Art + Public Outdoor Project.  Similar programs have ran over the last 13 years in Kalamazoo, Lansing & Ann Arbor, Michigan as well as Peoria and Champaign, Illinois. The idea stemmed from the founder, Wendy Hickey’s love of art and making sure any available billboard space was filled to inspire the community.
Charlotte, NC will launch the first official ArtPop program in January of 2014.  50 artists submitted their work and 15 works were chosen by a local panel of judges.
10 additional works were voted on by the public, and received over 2,000 votes. The artists’ work will post beginning the week of January 6, 2014 and will travel throughout the Adams Charlotte coverage area for one year on a space available basis  
The 2014 Charlotte ArtPop program was made possible through a partnership between Adams Outdoor Advertising of Charlotte, NC as well as the Arts & Science Council.  The Arts & Science Council donated a grant to cover the costs of the 20 printed vinyls. Please contact Wendy Hickey if you would like additional information.
