As an alternative to the white walls of the gallery or museum, the show is on a digital billboard. Yes a billboard. Isn't that the most extraordinary thing ever!

Instead of trying to get people to visit the traditional art world venues, these digital billboards bring art and craft to a new and larger audience.

On Saturday and Sunday
ALL participants' work will be shown in a weekend rotation.

Monday through Friday each week will feature new artists. My work will be one of the featured artists starting Monday, October 3 through Friday, October 7.
