ART Bus Canstruction Sculpture Debuting at Quarter Fest!

April 12, 2019

How many cans do you think it would take to build an ART bus? You can make a guess at Quarter Fest being held at Ballston Quarter where a 10 ft x 10 ft Canstruction sculpture of an ART bus will be built as part of ART—Arlington Transit’s 20 year anniversary.

An ART bus sculpture will be built entirely out of canned foods and on display for the public to view at Ballston Quarter (outside True Food Kitchen) from May 15 – June 8. Once the sculpture is dismantled, all of the canned food will be donated to the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) to help Arlington residents.

Visit the ART bus sculpture during Quarter Fest, being held May 18 – 19 at Ballston Quarter, to view the sculpture and guess how many cans were used to build it. You can also bring canned food items to donate to AFAC during the event. Donation boxes will be set-up near the sculpture.

Make sure to check back after May 15 to see pictures and video of the ART bus sculpture being built and the completed sculpture.
