About the Project
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. The Downtown Arts District is working with Pat Greene, founder of The Corridor Project, to select artists and artwork for this exhibition. Eleven artists have been pre-selected by Greene. The remaining 19 artists will be selected through an open call facilitated by the Downtown Arts District.
The remaining artists will be announced via Facebook Live on October 24, 2022.
In partnership with Clear Channel Outdoor, each artist will be featured on one printed billboard in the region. In addition, all of the artwork will rotate on digital billboards 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 Orlando and I4.
On January 19, 2023, there will be an Opening Night Reception (3rd Thursday) at CityArts to unveil the artwork from the billboards. This in-person exhibition will run from January 19 - February 12, 2023.
