Transforming Los Angeles into a Massive Art Installation

What We Do

Based in Los Angeles, The Billboard Creative (TBC) is a nonprofit organization that transforms how art is viewed by offering alternative platforms beyond traditional museums and galleries. Through billboard exhibitions, an artist grant program, and in-depth interviews, TBC provides exposure for artists outside the conventional art scene, breaking down financial barriers typically found in the art market. TBC advocates for the essential role of art in community well-being, turning everyday spaces into public galleries and promoting unrestricted access to art as a fundamental right not a privilege.

10-Year Anniversary 

It gives us immense pleasure to invite you to join us in celebrating an extraordinary decade of artistic innovation and urban transformation with our latest show, "SURREAL: The 2024 Installation." Over the past ten years, TBC has curated eleven exhibitions, employing hundreds of billboards throughout Los Angeles , which have collectively garnered the attention of over 83 million onlookers. This initiative has revitalized the city's landscape, turning it into a dynamic, open-air gallery that weaves art into the fabric of public spaces and everyday lives.

TBC | Grants

Our organization was founded with the belief that all artists deserve the opportunity to pursue their passions and share their talents with the greater community. Through our arts grant program, we provide financial support to artists who are often overlooked or underrepresented in the arts. We currently award three grants of $1,000 each annually and all artists who submit to the TBC show are eligible. We strive to foster a culture of inclusivity and diversity in the artists we support.

2024 Grant Awardees

This year's awardees explore deep personal and historical narratives through painting, performance, and mixed media. Their works critically engage with themes of cultural identity, immigration, and the human impacts of incarceration, blending individual experiences with broader societal issues.
