WASHINGTON (AP) — Five museums say they are organizing the largest outdoor art show to showcase American art nationwide this summer.

Beginning Monday, curators are asking the public to vote online to choose which artwork will be featured on 50,000 displays for the "Art Everywhere" initiative in August. Members of the Outdoor Advertising Association of America are donating the space.

Museums have nominated 100 artworks to choose from. They include Jasper Johns' "Three Flags," Grant Wood's "American Gothic," Gilbert Stuart's "George Washington" and Edward Hopper's "Nighthawks." Other artists include Mary Cassatt, Georgia O'Keeffe, Mark Rothko and Andy Warhol.

Participating museums include 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 in New York.
