The new class is revealed during a special celebration where each new artist receives a miniature billboard of their new public art project. Then, the ArtPop partners do the magic of spreading art to the community on billboards, newsstands, and digital boards throughout the city. Each jury selects one Senior High School student for inclusion in the class. Student artists receive a scholarship to a collegiate art program and the support of the entire ArtPop community. Starting in 2019, ArtPop partnered with ArtistsU to provide artists with the tools and resources they need to make a professional living. ArtPop’s Business of Art workshops teach the ins and outs of small business ownership from the artists’ perspective. ArtPop Street Gallery is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that showcases local artists by featuring their art in public spaces and equipping them to achieve sustained success. ArtPop makes art accessible to all people in the communities they serve because everyone deserves access to art. ArtPop does this in two ways, through Cities Programs and Inspiration Projects. In the Cities Programs, ArtPop makes local artists household names and creates city-sized street galleries through space like billboards and more. The Inspiration Projects work through generous commissions with corporate partners to create paid opportunities for artists while creating public art projects for all to enjoy. Meet the new 2021 class representing ArtPop Charlotte.
