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 are invited to submit images of original works for the 8th 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 of Hannibal and Independent’s Service Company.
Each year we receive entries from area artists, artisans, craftsmen, photographers, writers, actors, dancers and performers in both the Adult and Youth Divisions. Each winner (3 in Adult Division/1 in Youth Division) will have their work featured on billboards printed by Independent’s Service Company and displayed on Lamar Outdoor Advertising of Hannibal billboards around the area, as well as digital billboards in Hannibal and Quincy.
