My Artwork on a Billboard? Whaaaaaat?

Yes, it's true. I was one of six winners in the ArtPop competition to have my artwork displayed by Adams Outdoor Advertising on billboards throughout the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. I'm so excited I can't even put my feelings into words. ArtPop partnered with ArtsQuest and Adams to bring this program, already happening in Charlottle, NC to the Lehigh Valley. Please take a peep at my video and some stills from recent days. If you would, I'd love to have you follow ArtPop (not the Lady Gaga page) and support them. Wendy Hickey is really trying to spread the word and get this program started in many cities in the US and maybe eventually take it abroad. As always, thank you for your support. And if you want to see my billboard, it is on 476 (what was known as the northeast extension of the PA Turnpike) about 2 miles north of Allentown. The tough part is that you have to travel northbound to Jim Thorpe!!! Where you can do a u-turn and head back to Allentown. Two miles before Allentown, you'll see the billboard on the southbound side of 476 up on a hill. Would LOVE for you to share your thoughts with me.

OK, here are some videos and photos! First this little video I made...

Me looking like a dork, all proud and happy. Thank you husband Bill for taking these photos!

Below is a photo of the winners from left to right:

Theo Anderson, Olaf Starorypinsky, Michael Hess, Julie Miller (me), and Hong Tatt Foo. 
Matt Halm was the "People's Choice" winner through an online vote, but is not pictured here.

Hope you can all go see these billboards. It's artwork instead of advertising meant to make our area more beautiful. More on all this soon.

Till then, HAPPY NEW YEAR and stay well!
