Since 2002, Your Art Here (YAH) has founded three community-run-artist-billboards in Bloomington and Indianapolis, and has exhibited over 50 art billboards on YAH billboards and on commercial for-rent billboards. In 2006, Your Art Here displayed art on city buses for the first time.
Your Art Here is an Indiana-based non-profit public art organization created to provide local communities with an opportunity to engage in visual, public dialogue through the use of billboards and other public spaces.
Our mission is to extend visual expression beyond traditional museum and gallery spaces in order to create a public venue where art and ideas can be expressed freely.
