What We Do
ArtPop's Mission is to promote local artists' work and make art accessible to our community through available media space.
ArtPop was founded in Charlotte, North Carolina in 2014, and since then has expanded to fourteen other cities across the United States, including Charleston, SC, Las Vegas, NV, Triad, NC, Nashville, TN, Columbus, OH, Pocono, PA, Lehigh Valley, PA, Norfolk, VA, Beaufort, SC, Central Florida, FL, Lakeland, FL, Peoria, IL, and Tampa, FL.
Local artists submit a piece of original work to a juried show, and the selected pieces are displayed on public outdoor media spaces, such as newsstands and billboards, bus sides, the airport for an entire year at no cost to the artist.
This serves several important goals that serve our larger mission: first, it promotes a local artist's work. Secondly, it expands access to art in a community beyond the walls of galleries and museums to the great outdoors where they can be enjoyed by everyone. Lastly, over time, the ArtPop program seeks to foster and develop communities of artists - as of January 2018, over 300 artists have participated in the program across 14 cities, and that is only the beginning!
Help us to grow our program and expand our footprint to promote local artists across the country through available media space!
