Art Everywhere in the US

edward hopper early sunday morning

Art Everywhere is coming to the United States in August. Started in the UK by Richard Reed the organization aims to flood the streets with great art. Tens of thousands of posters displaying famous American art will be on advertising billboards, bus shelters, and subway posters from one coast to the other. The 58 works of art chosen to be shown were voted on by the public from a selection of 100 works that were put forward by 5 leading art museums.

Art Everywhere US includes American masterworks from 1767  through to  2008, with paintings dominating the list, but there’s also photographs, decorative objects and works on paper. They’ll begin appearing in all 50 states from the 4th of August. Here’s a few paintings that were voted for by the American public..
