High Art Billboard Project

September 2018

2017 High Art Logo 

The Arts Council of Indianapolis, in partnership with Fairway Outdoor Advertising, created a new city-wide public art project. The project takes 10 works of art by Indiana artists, prints them in a billboard format and places them around the city on a rotating basis.  Images are rotated in and out of various locations as sites open up in the regular rotation of billboard advertisements. The works will rotate for one year on billboards throughout Marion and the seven surrounding counties.

To see the current and previous rounds, scroll down:


2018 - 2019 Round:

New for this year, each artist gets a "poster" sized billboard in addition to the standard, large (14' x 40'), typically highway-adjacent billboards. These "poster" billboards (10' x 24') are the kind usually seen in smaller main street-type community settings.

The new round of billboards will be installed the week of September 3rd!  Vote here for your favorite in the High Art People's Choice contest!  The winning artist will recieve $500 and their artwork on display on Fairway Outdoor digital billboards around Indianapolis. Voting ends Sunday, September 9th at 11:59 p.m.
