Public Art - Art-On-The-Move
Raleigh Arts Commission
The Raleigh Arts Commission, in partnership with Capital Area Transit (CAT), sponsors ART-ON-THE-MOVE (original art on the sides of CAT buses). The first ART-ON-THE-MOVE buses were unveiled in September 2007 to public delight. The latest iteration of the project is scheduled to debut at Artsplosure 2013, with a dedication ceremony on Saturday, May 18, 2013. The artwork remains on the CAT buses for a period of six months.
Participating artists have created an art gallery on wheels, with imaginative designs that include imagery of riders on the bus, historic views of Raleigh, whimsical dinosaurs, robots and monsters, and a typographic portrayal of Sir Walter Raleigh.
Over sixty designs were submitted for consideration for this year's project. Artwork submissions are reviewed by a panel of community members and representatives from the Arts Commission and Capital Area Transit, with final selections recommended by the review panel and approved by the Arts Commission and the Raleigh Transit Authority.
We are also pleased to present a 350" long mural celebrating artwork created by artists since Art-on-the-Move's debut in 2007. Located at the Craig Building transit center on Wilmington Street near Busy Bee Café, the mural is a part of renovations to the site that enhance the transit patron's experience and adds to the quality of the urban environment.
