ArtPop is a 501c3 organization that gives communities across the country greater access to art, by supporting the artists that create it.


We do that by promoting their work on available media space — on billboards, on the sides of buses, across news racks, in airport terminals — which we secure through the generous donations of media companies across the country. ArtPop operates in 14 cities, and since 2014, we have displayed the work of more than 265 artists in our street galleries from Charlotte, NC to Las Vegas. 

Who should apply for ArtPop? 

This program is open to individual artists from any discipline who are 18 years or older and interested in growing their careers as artists.  You need to have a active artist website or a site in which you sell your art.  ArtPop is not meant for "groups" or causes. If you have been chosen for ArtPop previously, you cannot reapply for 3 years as we want to promote as many different artists as possible. You must live in the city or county in which the call for artists is posted. 

How are artists selected?

After a call for entry closes, the artists’ work is juried in and some cities have a public vote component.. Unfortunately we can’t accept everyone as space is limited. So if you are not chosen for the program the year you apply, we encourage you to apply again.Should your work be chosen, you need to be able to supply a 300 dpi high res image for printing purposes. No exceptions.
