New Art on the ART Bus Exhibit by Amos Kennedy

December 11, 2019

The latest Art on the ART Bus exhibit is up!

The exhibit features seven letter-pressed placards that honor Arlington's 60th anniversary of the seven lunch counter sit-ins from June 9 to June 22, 1960. The sit-ins were peaceful protests to challenge widespread segregation policies. Learn more about the desegregation of lunch counters in Arlington.


Artist Amos Kennedy created the exhibit and makes prints, posters and postcards inspired by proverbs, sayings and quotes that are significant to the place where he is working.

The exhibit will travel on various ART routes throughout Arlington. Next time you're on an ART bus, look up! There may be a colorful surprise waiting for you!
