Art in Transit: works of art guaranteed to move people.
For the second year in a row, local artists have a new vehicle to express their creativity—city buses to be exact.
Tulsa Transit and AcrobatAnt, a local advertising agency, have teamed up to spotlight creativity and boost ridership with their Art in Transit competition.
Art in Transit promotes art and artists of all types by making their creations moving, working parts of the urban environment. Putting art in unexpected places, like buses, is a great way to beautify Tulsa's landscape and display our city's artistic horsepower.
