'Art Everywhere' is the world's largest public art exhibit. To accomplish this feat, the project made use of empty ad space around the United Kingdom. This is similar to the concept of 'brandalism,' where take over outdoor advertising space to subvert consumerist propaganda, but in a much more legitimate way.
Spearheaded by Sir Peter Blake, best known for his work designing the cover art for the Beatles album 'Sgt. Pepper and the Lonely Hearts Club Band,' Art Everywhere takes famous pieces of artwork and puts them on thousands of empty poster spaces. This includes wall installations on the sides of buildings, billboards and bus stops.
The public chose the art to be displayed from the national collection of British art.
