NEW YORK (AP) ― Famous artwork is about to hit America’s streets and public places.

“Art Everywhere US” is billed as the world’s largest outdoor art show.

Images of American artworks will appear on billboards, bus stops, digital display boards and subway platforms.

The kickoff is in New York’s Times Square on Aug. 4. The project runs through Aug. 31.

The 58 works were selected after a public online vote on 100 works nominated by curators of five leading American museums.

They include pieces by Edward Hopper, Winslow Homer and Mary Cassatt. 

The participating museums are the Art Institute of Chicago, Dallas Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, National Gallery of Art and Whitney Museum of American Art.

The project was conceived in 2013 in the U.K. with works by British artists.
