AAWE is dedicated to promotion of the arts in Arkansas. By hosting local artists on large scale billboards throughout the region, AAWE gives the community an open view of the talented artists in our communities and also provides an enrichment of environment through contemporary art. People that are unable or unaccustomed to visiting museums or galleries in order to view artworks are now able to see some of the most talented voices in our area on their daily commute. This allows for a truly inclusive and shared art experience in our community.
Arkansas Artists Work Enrichment, or AAWE is the newest Arkansas beautification project. Launched in January of 2017, in association with Simplemachine and Ashby St. Outdoor AAWE hosts Arkansas based artists work on billboards around the Northwest Arkansas area in order to promote local arts and culture in the Arkansas region. Artworks will rotate throughout the year and be on display for three months at a time.
