Waiting for the bus in downtown Cincinnati and Over-the-Rhine is about to become a bit more 'picturesque'.
ArtWorks, a local non-profit that employs and trains youth and talent to create art and community impact, and Metro are working together to transform 12 Cincinnati Metro bus shelters into colorful public art this summer.
With shelters near the Public Library of Cincinnati
and Hamilton County, the art will be based on a literature theme. Metro and
ArtWorks are now seeking community input on what books should be used as art
Organizers are asking bus riders and area residents to participate in a simple,
three-question online survey
about books to inspire the shelter art before June 30.
Metro's maintenance department will begin shelter
repair and painting in July.
Six ArtWorks apprentices from the area, ages 14-21, will work under the direction of project manager
Ryan Little and teaching artist Brandon Parker to create art to be installed in
the shelters later this summer.
The project dedication and community
celebration will be held in September.
