Last month we wrote about the open call for artists to participate in the Billboard Exhibition, an ambitious public-art undertaking that will turn billboards along I-4 in Central Florida into canvases for a host of local artists, starting in the final days of 2021 and running into January. Well, the call for artists is now closed and the final lineup of participants has been released.
The roster of artists who will be repurposing billboards along I-4 is 30-strong and includes some names that should be familiar to OW readers, including Leah Sandler, Boy Kong, Haley McCormick, Ashley Taylor, Daniel Harris, Samantha Shumaker, Kira Gondeck-Silvia and Crummy Gummy.
