HANNIBAL, Mo. — The Robinson Outdoor digital billboard on Broadway in Hannibal currently features four digital images of works by area artists. The images won the Hannibal Arts Council’s eighth annual Art in the Open billboard contest, a collaborative public art project of HAC, Robinson Outdoor and Independent’s Service Company.

The digital billboard showcasing the winning images is located at the intersection of Broadway and N. Maple. The images will be shown for two weeks each month for the next six months.

Three winners in the adult division and one winner in the youth division were selected for the collaborative public art project. The winning images in the adult division were:

  • “Feline” oil pastel by Amanda DePriest of Louisiana, Mo.;
  • “Menomorphosis: Mood Swing” watercolor by Kelly Eddington of Monroe City;
  • “Writing in Style” handcrafted acrylic pens by Roger McGregor of Hannibal.

Sydney Zimmerman of Hannibal with “Backyard Blues” ink wash won the youth division.

Entries for the ninth annual Art in the Open billboard contest will open in July. Guidelines will be posted on the Exhibit Opportunities page on the Hannibal Arts Council website, hannibalarts.com.
