New Art on the ART Bus Exhibit Features Nature

November 6, 2012

The latest Art on the ART Bus exhibit just went up and is currently traveling around Arlington! The newest installation of this popular mobile exhibit features artwork from artist Jeffrey Smith. Smith grew up in Virginia and is currently living in Washington, DC. Inspiration for his art is found in the natural world of VA, MD and DC.

The species depicted in the ART Bus exhibit are indigenous to Arlington County. These native plants and animals, which struggle to survive within the increasingly developed cities and counties of the region, are a reminder that life everywhere coexists by the grace of a balance now entirely in the hands of humans.

See below for some pictures from the exhibit and view more pictures on ART's Facebook page.

The Art on the ART Bus exhibit is a joint effort between Arlington Transit and the Artisphere.

One ART bus has been designated for the exhibit and will rotate bus routes so that all riders can enjoy the artwork. Remember to look up the next time you board an ART bus. There might be a colorful surprise waiting for you!
