For the fourth time we can welcome Viborg International Billboard Painting Festival. This event just grows bigger every year, and everybody are invited to participate in an artistic experience of the greatest.
Workshop 2 to 12 June
The festival took place in the first week of June with a large workshop close to Viborg Kunsthal where artists perform new giant paintings. This year, artists have been able to apply the event based on the American billboard genre.
Jury members Anne -Mette Villumsen, Helene Nyborg Bay and Thorkild NB Nielsen chose among a big number of applicants the six artists who met these conditions.
In a few hectic weeks anybody can follow their work closely in the exciting process from virgin canvas to finished painting.
