An ART Bus Built from Cans!

May 16, 2019

The ART bus Canstruction sculpture is complete! 

In celebration of ART's 20th anniversary, a sculpture of an ART bus was built entirely out of food cans and is on display at Ballston Quarter. The sculpture is located on the main level of the mall across from the True Foods Kitchen and will be on display until June 8. Once the sculpture is taken down, all of the food will be donated to the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) to help Arlington families.

Visit the ART bus sculpture during Quarter Fest, being held May 18 – 19 at Ballston Quarter. While there, guess how many cans were used to build the ART bus. The winner will receive a SmarTrip card loaded with $25.

You can also bring canned food items to donate to AFAC during the event. Donation boxes will be set-up near the sculpture.
