Brit Week and Art Below have joined forces to run a children's art challenge in collaboration with LA's BEST. In line with the Brit Week theme, children were challenged to create a piece of artwork based on the theme of British culture. Winning works were selected by a panel of judges from Brit Week and Art Below. To coincide with Brit Week, these works will be showcased as billboard exhibits for 2 weeks in Pimlico London Underground Station, the public transport gateway to one of the most highly respected art institutions in the world - The Tate Britain. A larger selection of works will also be on show in Los Angeles on Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade during a two-day spring festival in May.
