Calling all artists SaveArtSpace is having an open call for submissions of artwork to be featured on billboard and bus shelter ad space across Miami.
“People did not move here for the advertisements," founder Travis Rix said. "They are here for the murals - so we have taken over the advertising spaces and put artwork on it.”
The are bringing artwork to public places throughout the city.
“It was just so cool. It was in the middle of Wynwood and everyone was sending me pictures,” local artist and curator Haiiileen said.
Nine artists will be selected, and each artist will receive both a bus shelter and billboard ad space, along with a $500 honorarium from SaveArtSpace and the potential to have their original artwork exhibited in a gallery during Art Basel.
Open to artists of all ages, skill levels and backgrounds, the project will accept submissions through Monday, October 11th and all artwork is accepted.
