Billboard Call to Artists


With less than 2 months left to try to ensure our communities get their FAIR SHARE OF FEDERAL FUNDING AND POLITICAL REPRESENTATION for the next 10 years, Art+Action is bringing the COME TO YOURCENSUS campaign to Florida.

With the support of Ford Foundation, we are seeking 5 artists whose work will serve to inspire their communities—particularly the hard-to-count—to participate in the 2020 Census, which ends on 9.30.2020. The artwork selected will appear on a billboard in Florida, in our online Census Toolkit, and on social media outlets. The artist will be highlighted as a Featured Artist in our campaign—among locally and internationally renowned artists—and will receive an award of $1,000.
