Now through September
various locations around Aberdeen
Our third billboard is located on South Dakota Street between 3rd Avenue and 6th Avenue. You need to be traveling south to see it. The featured artist is Amanda Huml. To learn more about Amanda, please check out our blog post. Our other billboards are still up on North State street – near the railroad tracks and West 6th Ave. We hope you are enjoying this splash of art around the community.
You are used to seeing advertising for a business on billboards around town. Now you need to keep your eyes open for something other than advertising showing up on them. The Aberdeen Area Arts Council has launched a program we are referring to as “Billboard Art”. Each month we will be featuring a different local artist on a billboard someplace in Aberdeen. It will not be the same location each month. 2020 has been a tough year for everyone. Throughout the centuries, art is what has helped people get through dark times in their personal lives as well as things that are happening in the country or world. Our hope with this project is to bring some brightness into people’s day as they are driving in town.
If you are an artist or know an artist that could be featured on an upcoming billboard, please contact the Aberdeen Area Arts Council at 605-226-1557 or email us at here We have several billboards to fill in the future.
This public art project has received funding assistance from the United States Regional Arts Resilience Fund, a program of our regional arts organization Arts Midwest.
