This summer you can help convert thousands of billboards into British masterpieces. To make this happen you need only give £3, chip in more and get your own bit of British art.
Launching 8 August 2013, Art Everywhere will transform thousands of poster sites and billboards into iconic works of British art. The project is a UK first – a massive-scale celebration of British art and we want you to be a part of it.
A donation of only £3 pays for the paper and print to convert a billboard into a British masterpiece, give a little more and you can also get some exclusive limited editions by British artist Bob and Roberta Smith and massive art posters as a thank you for putting on the show.
From must-have tote bags to cool t-shirts and limited-edition prints, this is the perfect way to get your hands on some original British art and celebrate the nation’s greatest works at the same time. Want to get involved? Donate now and be part of this exciting project.
What is Art Everywhere?
The Art Everywhere project is a massive charitable celebration created by artists, curators, media owners, and entrepreneurs joined by a love of art, as Stephen Deuchar, Director of the Art Fund, explains, 'The Art Fund is all about thousands of people coming together to bring great art into the public realm. Art Everywhere is based on the same premise. It’s about joining in, giving as little as £3, and putting a piece of great British art into the lives of friends, neighbours, strangers.'
From 24 June you'll also be able to help us choose the 50 British masterpieces for the exhibition by liking your favourite works of art on the Art Everywhere website. Reproductions of the most popular works will be shown on billboard sites across the country for two weeks in August.
