You don’t get much more high-profile than your masterpiece displayed on a billboard on the side of the Pacific Highway, but that’s exactly what artists of the Clarence Valley are being offered with the 2016 Art at Large Billboard Project.
Art at Large is a multi-site billboard project that aims to attract visitors to the Clarence Valley and the Grafton Regional Gallery and presents the opportunity for artists to have their work displayed on a large scale in a public place.
Mayor, Richie Williamson, described the Art at Large project as a great way to show passing highway traffic the Clarence Valley had a very active arts culture.
“The Art at Large project has been running since 2011 and has proved to be a great way for artists to have their work noticed,” he said.
“It opens a range of opportunities for the artist while giving the Clarence Valley a chance to show of its culture and talent.”
Previous and current billboards included in the Art at Large project can be viewed online at

Submissions for the 2016 Art at Large project close at 4pm on Monday, August 8, 2016.
