The highly anticipated “Art Everywhere” movement, originally started as a touring exposition in the United Kingdom, has kicked off its US debut with a large-scale showing at New York City’s Times Square! Announced this April, Art Everywhere plans to be the largest outdoor showing of classic and modern American artwork in the nation, with over 50,000 public displays set to participate in the nationwide exhibition. With works donated from museums like the Dallas Museum of Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, New York’s Whitney Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and DC’s National Gallery of Art, the show features a wide variety of artwork that strives to bring art to the public in a unique and inviting way.

The show, which will run through the duration of August in various cities across America, took over New York City’s Times Square on its grand opening on August 4th. A number of electronic billboards, ad spaces, bus stops, and other displays throughout Times Square and New York City were taken over by classic artwork from artists like Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Chuck Close, Edward Hopper, and other artists. With more artwork and locations coming as the month goes on, make sure to check out Art Everywhere’s website here for detailed information on locations near you!

Masterpieces are about to head to the streets in a big way with the upcoming ‘Art Everywhere’ outdoors exhibit! In an initiative led by museums and billboard agencies, over 50,000 displays across America, ranging from signs, bus stops, and electronic billboards, will be taken over by a variety of artwork from the nation’s leading museums, including pieces from big American artists like Roy Lichtenstein, Edward Hopper, Jasper Johns, and many more. With the popularity of smartphones and the Internet in recent culture, large-scale advertising billboards and other signage has gone unused across the nation as ad agencies look to digital advertising.

The movement is scheduled to take place staring on August 4th, 2014, and there is a poll going on the exhibit’s official website where fans can vote for their favorite paintings. The top 50 images selected from this poll will be reproduced across America for millions to see. The exhibit is similar to an initiative in Britain last summer, also titled ‘Art Everywhere’, and hopes to exceed the expectations set by Britain’s successful show. So make sure to head to http://arteverywhereus.org/ to cast your vote, and keep your eyes open this summer. Maybe you’ll see one of your favorite pieces in a much bigger way!
