COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Greater Columbus Arts Council (Arts Council) is proud to partner with Lamar and the Art Makes Columbus/Columbus Makes Art campaign to present the first annual ArtPop street gallery. ArtPop Cbus will shine the spotlight on Columbus’ talented artists by placing their work on available billboards throughout Franklin County.
Five artists were selected from 33 applications: David Butler, Cody F. Miller, Kate Morgan, Stephanie Rond and Carol Stewart. See their work at columbusmakesart.com/artpop.
The ArtPop Cbus selection committee was comprised of representatives from the Arts Council, ArtPop, Lamar and two at-large community members. The winning artists’ work will be installed in mid-April and displayed on print billboards owned and managed by Lamar throughout Franklin County, changing locations as space becomes available.
