About Art In The Open
Professional and non-professional ADULT artists 18 years of age or older and YOUTH ages 8 to 17 who live within a 50-mile radius of Hannibal were invited to submit images of original works for the fourth annual ART IN THE OPEN billboard art competition. The goal of the project is to capture the creative spirit all art forms represented in Northeast Missouri and Western Illinois. The contest was created by the Hannibal Arts Council in partnership with Lamar Outdoor Advertising and Independent’s Service Company.
Over one hundred entries were submitted last year by area artists, artisans, craftsmen, photographers, writers, actors, dancers and performers. The jury committee for the project met recently and selected the top five winners in the Adult division and one winner in the Youth division to be featured. Each winner has their work featured on a billboard printed by Independent’s Service Company and displayed on Lamar Outdoor Advertising billboards around the area and are also digital billboards in Hannibal and Quincy.
