Art Everywhere US is a public celebration of great American art, inspired by last summer’s Art Everywhere UK, and organized by the Outdoor Advertising Association of America. This summer, images of great American art will be displayed as part of “the largest outdoor art show ever conceived.” Fifty-eight artworks from five of America’s leading art museums—the Art Institute of Chicago, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Dallas Museum of Art—will be seen from coast-to-coast throughout August with a launch in New York's Times Square on August 4, 2014.
Ten of the DMA's great American works of art, shown below, will transfrom billboards, bus shelters, subway platforms, airport dioramas, movie theaters, and more into a free, open-air art gallery across the country.
Art Everywhere US is organized by the Art Institute of Chicago, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the National Gallery of Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York and by the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA) and its members, with the cooperation of artists, estates, foundations, and rights agencies.
