We are bringing an installation to all 50 states!

You Are Beautiful began in 2002 as a sticker spreading a hopeful message through public art. Our goal is to be a positive force and transmit a simple idea: Everyone deserves to feel good. Since then, our project has distributed millions of stickers in over 100 languages, and has grown into large-scale installations, including this project - bringing an installation to every state. Our community-based message always includes your voice, & we invite you to keep sharing hope with your world.
How can I bring YAB to my state?
We are working with go-getters who have a perfect spot for a YAB Installation, and want to make it happen. See the list below to find out if your state is available.
How much does it cost?
It’s free! We’ll ship you an installation completely free of charge. As a host, your only cost is the hardware to install the piece!
That’s amazing! How is it free?
Our incredible community funded a Kickstarter campaign to bring one installation to each state! As a thank you, we’re donating the shipping costs!
I want to become a host! What do I need?
To become a host, you just need a public location & permission to install the piece at that location.
It can be mounted to brick or wood walls, fences, or you can even build your own self standing structures for the piece. Get more specific information here!
Is it sturdy for the outdoors?
Yes! Our All-Weather HDPE Plastic pieces are extremely durable. They have lasted the test of time in Chicago, and will flourish in your community as well.
My state is taken, can I still bring YAB to my city?
Absolutely! Contact us, and we can discuss the process to bring a custom installation to your city.
In Aurora, Colorado the installation was simply screwed to an existing fence at ground level, outside of Stanley Marketplace.
In Rugby, North Dakota the piece was installed at the same time that a new building facade was put in place behind the Main Street Boutique.
Here is a full listing of all 50 States, with City & Hosts of current "Where You Are" pieces. (To see the exact addresses, click on the pins of the map).

Welcome the new piece to your community, with an unveiling event! It's a small added touch, that can be simple & sweet!
It's just a great way to bring people together, especially after we’ve been so far apart :)
Here is the unveiling in Berwyn, Pennsylvania by Host Megan Forgie. This self standing installation sits outside the YMCA, and as they revealed the piece visitors cheered & cars honked.
When host Stephanie La Blue Robles installed their piece in San Diego, California, she set up a table & handed out stickers & good cheer to all of those who walked by the Apple Tree Supermarket.
Many community members came out in Morristown, Vermont to cheer on the unveiling of the piece hosted by Host Julis Skonicki, that now lives at the Lamoille Family Center, facing the road.
The whole crew in Springfield, Missouri was all decked out in yabgear & smiles when their piece was in installed during the opening of the Hold Fast Brewery. You can feel the joy radiating.
What wonderful way to welcome these installations to their new homes :)
