Attention Detroit artists: Here's a chance to have your work seen by thousands.

Playground Detroit is partnering with SaveArtSpace to put the work of Detroit-area artists on six billboards around the Motor City this summer.



The campaign will be curated by Detroit-based artist Ellen Rutt. Artists are invited to submit up to 10 images before May 28, and winners will be announced the week of June 10.  

The billboards will be up for the month of July to coincide Detroit Art Week, which is planned for July 16-21. The artwork will also be featured in a gallery exhibition at Playground Detroit, with an opening reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on July 13.
