Moving Art – Call for Submissions.

Well the art itself isn’t moving, the art is on buses that are moving. Now entering it’s second year – Art in Transit works to put artwork on the buses in the places where you usually find advertisements.

This picture is one of the designs from Art in Transit 2006.

Anyone can submit a design for the 2007 project – they are looking for transit themed art. Submission deadline is August 14, 2007. More info on the project and pictures of last years work are available at ArtInTransit.org.

Here is the segement that OnQ did about the Art in Transit project…
