Thousands of advertising billboards across Britain and the US are playing host to artworks this month as part of Art Everywhere.

Pitched as the “largest outdoor art exhibition ever conceived,” the Art Everywhere project places prints nominated by the public on prominent hoardings. The 25 artworks on show around Britain this year include David Hockney’s My Parents (1977), Dora Carrington’s Farm at Watendlath (1921) and Dame Laura Knight’s second world war work Ruby Loftus screwing a Breech-ring.

For Art Everywhere US’s inaugural year, the works include James Whistler’s Symphony in White, No.1: The White Girl, Grant Wood’s American Gothic and Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks. 

We’d like to see your street photographs of Art Everywhere in situ. Send us your pictures using the blue ‘contribute’ links above and below – and we’ll publish the most creative submissions in the next few weeks.
