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 seventh 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.
128 entries were submitted last year by area artists, artisans, craftsmen, photographers, writers, actors, dancers and performers, including 84 in the Adult Division and 44 in the Youth Division. Each winner will have their work featured on a billboard 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.
