One of 14 works of art on display on billboards throughout Los Angeles through May 15 as part of The Billboard Creative Q1 2015 outdoor 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 making art as assessable to Angelenos as the numerous billboards they view every day.

"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." 

Artists' submission fees funded billboard space rental for the show.  Santelli refers to it as an artist crowd-funding model.  Angelenos can download a show map, with addresses and QR codes with Google Maps for each billboard location, at www.thebillboardcreative.com/map.
