Art on the Move: Fusing Community Creativity with Public Transport

119

The City of Lynn, north of Boston, MA, and the Lynn Public Art Commission (LPAC) collaborated with the Boston Bus Rapid Transit initiative (BostonBRT, a program managed by ITDP US) and TransitMatters to launch Art on the Move. This is an innovative initiative to transform seven selected bus shelters across the city into vibrant spaces of artistic expression to foster more community engagement and make public transit a destination in and of itself. From swirls of colors, shapes, and symbols, the shelter art represents how the artists see Lynn and how people navigate it to celebrate the themes of movement and journey. Each stop features the work of one of seven artists from across the region selected by a panel led by the City and LPAC, following a call to artists for designs.
