The second round of temporary "artist billboards (PDF)" were installed in Santa Rosa on July 31, 2013. Exhibited artists are Robert Berner, Monika Steiner, Michael Chamberlain, and Becoming Independent artist Alison Koehler.
In the spirit of "phantom galleries," or temporary art galleries in vacant buildings, the Artist Billboard Project brings temporarily installed artworks to lots around Santa Rosa. A project of the City of Santa Rosa's Art in Public Places Program, the goal is to present public art in surprising places. Similar to the Phantom Gallery's efforts, the Artist Billboard Project seeks to show alternative art in alternative spaces; beautify otherwise empty, sometimes derelict lots; and provide local artists unique exposure opportunities.
Billboards - Round 1
On display from September, 2012 through July, 2013, these billboards will be installed at new locations later this year. You can read an article published by the Press Democrat online.
