Our call for our 8th year in Charlotte for 2021 is due to open in September of 2020. Right now, we simply do not have enough funding to proceed.
We need to make this goal on or by 8/31/2020.
We at ArtPop Street Gallery assure the artists of our community are seen and thrive.
Since the inception of the #ArtPopCLT program in 2014, we have promoted 130 artists on billboards, digital displays, office lobbies, newsstands, the CLT airport, Northlake Mall and more. We reserve a spot each year for a Sr. High art student to receive a scholarship to study the arts in college, and that student also receives all the adult ArtPop benefits.
We host an open call for artists of the greater Charlotte region to apply, we jury in 20 artists each year and those 20 artists collectively share in a 3.3 million dollar ad campaign. We also create at least 4 pop up gallery shows for our artists to engage with the community and sell their art.
Each of our artists receive a 2 day course in the business of art, teaching the skills to live a sustainable life as a full time artist.
How does this help artists?
89% of our artists see digital growth on their social media and website traffic.
85% grow connections in thee art community
41% state sales/commissions have increased through ArtPop & that average increase in sales is 27%
100% of our artists would recommend ArtPop to other artists.
The by-product of all of this art is we are also making art accessible to our community. We know only 30% of our population goes to a gallery or museum. ArtPop makes art accessible to everyone who walks outside their door!
Yes, even $10 helps! Can't donate right now?
