From the Pages of Orlando Weekly: Central Florida Drivers Will Get I-4 Corridor Billboard Art Exhibition in January 2022
The pandemic has us all used to getting our coffee, our medicine, even our groceries from the safety of the drivers’ seat. Now a local art curator has plans to add our daily allowance of eye candy to that list.
Pat Greene wants to make art accessible to every driver and passenger on Interstate 4. He’s partnering with Clear Channel Outdoor and Orlando’s Downtown Arts District to turn the I-4 Corridor into a gallery of local artists — a gallery that can be visited at 55 miles per hour.
Artwork chosen as part of the Corridor Project Billboard Exhibition will be blown up to 12 by 25 feet and displayed on traditional and digital billboards along the highway. The artists must be from one of the counties I-4 passes through. Of the 30 artists whose work will be on view, so far 11 have been named; the search is ongoing through Oct. 1 at orlandoslice.com/events.
The Corridor Project Billboard exhibition will be visible throughout the month of January 2022. If you don’t drive or simply avoid I-4, you can still see the art. The selected works will be displayed at the CityArts gallery in downtown Orlando starting Jan. 20.
