Twenty regional artists have been selected to have their art displayed as part of the fourth year of ArtPop. Art will be installed in January and will remain on display throughout 2017.
ArtPop was launched in 2014 by ASC, Adams Outdoor Advertising and Wendy Hickey, ArtPop founder. The program gives local artists an opportunity to have their work displayed on available billboard space in the Charlotte-area.
A jury of local art and design experts selected the following 15 artists:
Micah Cash, Concord (oil on canvas)
Justin Christenbery, Cornelius (acrylic painting on canvas)
Mark Doepker, Huntersville (Prismacolor (colored pencil))

Theron Ross, Charlotte (forged iron)
Caroline Rust, Rock Hill (oil on canvas)
Ju-Ian Shen, Charlotte (ceramic art)
