Art En Route connects the literary with the visual. Here in Madison, WI Art En Route bridges an underexplored platform for creative expression between the junction of public transportation and public works of art.
This project will pair visual and literary artists to together, create uniquely commissioned works of art. The final, collaborative works will be photographed and printed on the exterior bus wraps of Madison Metro Transit busses. We project that this intersection of public art and public transportation will increase the day to day interactive artistic occurrence for the Dane County community.
This project is open to all greater Dane County area creatives.
Madison Metro Transit riders represent no consistent background. Rather, they compile a demographic representative of the diversity unique to the Madison community. We hope that Art En Route will increase both the aesthetic and functional value of public transportation for all Metro Transit riders.
