Five artists chosen for Alliance’s 2021 ‘Art Lives Here’ billboard campaign


The Alliance for the Arts Art Lives Here Selection Committee has juried five artists into this year’s billboard campaign. They fabulous five are Tania Alves, Bruce MacKechnie, Doug Smithwick, Khaysie Tiburcio and Susi Wingenroth.

Now in its third year, the Art Lives Here billboard campaign transforms billboard space throughout Lee County into public art. By bringing artwork outside of the traditional context of museum and gallery walls, the campaign draws attention to emerging artists’ work while at the same time making the arts accessible to all.

Last year, the juried artworks could be found on billboards at intersections throughout Lee County, including I-75 and Alico Road, Gladiolus Drive and U.S. 41, Colonial Boulevard and Evans Avenue, and Pine Island Road west of U.S. 41. Some were regular billboards, while others were digital, with the advantage that they could cycle through all the pieces in the exhibit.

The campaign is made possible by Alliance season sponsor Carter Outdoor.
