ArtPop Cities Program Class of 2023 

I am excited to be included as one of twenty artist in the ArtPop Cities Program. My Painting "This Town is a Fishbowl" will be prominently features across my hometown of Charlotte, NC on billboards and other outdoor and indoor advertising spaces.

The #ArtPopCLT Cities Program is an annual juried-in exhibition with a twist: the gallery is your entire city. Selected artists receive thousands of dollars in public media space, educational opportunities, features at artist events, and more - all to foster sustainable careers in the arts and to make art accessible to all.
