MAKING ART A LANDMARK
Champaign County is an incredibly creative community overflowing with talent. Adams Outdoor Advertising and 40 North | 88 West want to feed those creative flames by creating a different type of rotating gallery. Sky Gallery is an outlet for local artists to display their work on possibly the largest canvas in town: billboards! Sky Gallery is a unique opportunity for an artist to share their creativity with the community on a whole new level.
Congratulations to these 6 artists who will have their image featured on custom 10' x 30' billboards around C-U! The boards will be posted during the 2014 Boneyard Arts Festival.
