Inside the Art on the ART Bus

December 21, 2010

The Art on the ART Bus mobile art exhibit officially launched on December 11 with great success!

The mobile exhibit allows ART bus riders to enjoy original artwork from artists around the country on panels inside an ART bus. The first "Art on the ART Bus" exhibit features artwork from Tim Kerr of Austin, Texas who's work is also featured in the "Party Crashers: Comic Book Culture Invades the Art World" exhibit at the Artisphere in Rosslyn.

On December 11, exhibit goers were able to take the free "Art on the ART Bus" shuttle between the Artisphere and a sister exhibit at the Arlington Arts Center (ACC). Tim Kerr rode the bus and also provided some live music!  

If you missed out on the fun, don't worry! The Art on the ART Bus exhibit will be traveling around Arlington for the next couple of months. One ART bus has been designated for the exhibit and will rotate routes so that all ART riders can enjoy the artwork. The exhibits at the Artisphere and ACC will be on display for several more weeks.

Remember to look up the next time you get on an ART bus. There might be a colorful surprise waiting for you!
