I have a challenge for you...Palisades, the nice NJ car insurance company, is looking for artwork inspired by NJ landscapes for the state’s first Highway Art Gallery. Create a new piece of artwork that tells a story about New Jersey or take a look in your portfolio and find a piece you have already created, take a photo and upload it at the address below!
This summer, the Palisades Highway Art Gallery will exhibit images of original works by NJ artists on some of the largest and most-viewed canvases in the state – New Jersey’s highway and roadway billboards. The first two billboards will feature artwork by renowned New Jersey landscape artists Tim Daly and Gary Godbee.
We’ve picked up to a dozen additional billboards on some of the most traveled roads throughout the state to feature work by artists like you! Your work could receive more than 80,000 views A DAY – and Palisades will foot the cost of the billboard and printing!
The purpose of the exhibit is to offer NJ artists a public venue for their work, and give local drivers an uplifting driving experience. This unique concept will give widespread exposure to New Jersey artists in a first-of-its-kind setting.
