Returning in January 2023 is The Corridor Project Billboard Exhibition. Modeled after the successful Billboard Creative in Los Angeles and Sonora 128 in Mexico City, this sky-high exhibition will feature the artwork of 30 artists from regions along the I4 corridor. DAD is working with Pat Greene, founder of The Corridor Project, to curate this exhibition.
Ten artists have been pre-selected by Greene. The remaining 20 artists will be selected through applications from an open call facilitated by DAD.
In partnership with Clear Channel Outdoor, each artist will be featured on one printed billboard in the region (12' h x 25' w poster), and all of the artwork will rotate on digital billboards continuously through the month of January 2023.
This is an incredible opportunity for both DAD and all the artists involved. The Corridor Project Billboard Exhibition will increase visibility and awareness of what the Central Florida creative community has to offer because it actively engages tourists and locals as they are driving around the streets of Orlando.
On January 19, 2023, there will be a public opening at CityArts to unveil the artwork from the billboards. This in-person exhibition will run from January 19 - February 12, 2023.
