Bus Shelter Art Contest

Project Description

In collaboration with the City of Greenville’s Arts in Public Places Commission and Youth Commission, Greenlink has enhanced 9 bus shelters in 2021 and an additional 6 bus shelters in 2022 with inspiring artwork by local students through its inaugural Bus Shelter Art Contest. 

Greenlink identified shelter locations and designed the scope of the project and the Youth Commission assisted in contacting local high schools to raise awareness about the contest. In 2021, there were 59 submissions and a jury of seven judges selected the top nine designs. The 2022 contest received 47 submissions and a jury of seven judges selected the winning six designs. In total for the two contests, the Arts in Public Places Commission awarded $6,500 toward production and installation costs to have the winning artwork digitized and adhered inside bus shelters throughout the City of Greenville with a vinyl wrap.
