Sister returns on the main stage! Now in its 23rd year, Late Nite Catechism is an uproarious piece of theater that takes audience members back - sometimes nostalgically, sometimes fearfully- to the children they once were.  The irrepressible Sister teaches an adult catechism class to a roomful of “students” (the audience).  Over the course of the play, Sister goes from benevolent instructor, rewarding the “students” for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and laminated saint cards, to authoritative drill sergeant.  These abrupt mood swings are bound to strike a resonant chord with everyone who survived the ups and downs of going to school!

A partnership between Adams Outdoor Advertising, the ArtPop Street Gallery, ArtsQuest and the region’s arts community,ArtPop is a public art program designed to highlight local artists and the important roles they play in the community by featuring their work on area billboards.

The program is open to artists living or working in Berks, Bucks, Lehigh, Montgomery and Northampton counties.


“ArtPop continues to highlight the great artistic talent we have in our region,” says Adams Outdoor Advertising General Manager Tony Cioffi. “We are honored to have Kutztown University back again as a partner to provide a scholarship opportunity to the high school winner and thankful to ArtsQuest and its Banana Factory for their continued support and involvement with the program.  


“Adams Outdoor Advertising is excited to continue this program and I’m particularly proud to see that this year’s judging panel is again filled with some of the finest creative minds including Olaf Starorypinski, a past ArtPop winner.  We wish all the participants the very best of luck and look forward to seeing the new winners on the road in early 2018.”

For ArtPop’s fourth year, Adams and ArtsQuest are opening the competition to residents of Warren County, N.J., with one winner to be featured prominently on an Adams billboard in Warren County for all of 2018.

Hawkinson. “We are excited to reward a talented young artist with a scholarship to further his or her skills at Kutztown University.”
