Public Art Lincoln seeking inspirational artwork for billboard project
Public Art Lincoln is seeking submissions of digital artwork that can be displayed on billboards, an undertaking intended to bring inspiring artwork to the city and support local artists during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Lincoln Billboard Art Project, supported by the Sherwood Foundation, Lincoln Community Foundation and Lamar Advertising, will place the works of 10 artists on 10 billboards around the city at the end of May.
“We’re seeking art that includes imagery and text that will unite and support and inspire and bring joy and healing to our community,” Public Art Lincoln director Deb Arenz said. “We also want to support our local artists whose primary sources of income have been affected by the pandemic and the resulting economic repercussions.”
A Public Art Lincoln committee will review submissions and select the 10 pieces to go on the billboards based on the artwork, its ability to inspire, its suitability for the billboard format and the artist’s statement of need.
Submission requirements and other information for artists is available at publicartlincoln.org.
