ArtPop: Accessible Art, Open Experiences

Photo by Sam Young

It’s a Saturday morning, and I’m riding down a busy road as my mom drives - the only visible scenery outside my window is the bland repetition of business signs and advertisements when I spot something out of the corner of my eye that brightens the entire road. On a billboard high in the sky is a beautiful abstract work of art; it takes my mind off the road for a moment and allows me to enjoy a sight that I haven't been able to view for a while: public art. 

ArtPop (Art + Public Outdoor Project) Street Gallery, a nonprofit organization based out of Charlotte, North Carolina, is known for investing in artists and public art. The organization was launched in 2014 and has reached 16 cities and 12 states since.
