Ellen Stapleton

BILLBOARD AT NEW ORLEANS MARDI GRAS PARADE

In 2012 Ellen was invited to take part in a very exciting pop up billboard exhibition for the New Orleans Mardi Gras festival.

A curated selection of 20 international artist from Italy, Spain, Australia, The UK, Sweden, USA and more exhibited their artwork on giant billboards flanking the major Mardi Gras parade route.

Billboard space used normally for advertising became a feature of contemporary art with a diverse range of techniques enhancing the city's unique cityscape with even more color during the most festive time of the year.

Running alongside the billboard show was an exhibition of the artist's original works at Gallery Orange based in the heart of the French quarter, with a exhibition launch event and a Mardi Gras style party.
