My art on bus stops
As you might recall, I entered 2 of my paintings into a competition to get my art displayed on local bus stops for a month. Both were selected, and now they’re up!
So of course I had to drive around town and take pictures of them.
Here’s the bus stop where my small (12×9″) painting “Pacheco Tree” is reproduced really HUGE! You can see every single brushstroke. Fun!
And “Satwiwa” is the featured painting at this bus stop. The guy sitting there seemed really confused by my taking photos of the bus stop. I explained that it was my art, but he didn’t seem to get it. Oh well.
The point of these bus-stop posters is to advertise the city’s annual street arts festival (October 2-3, 2010). Part of my prize was a free booth space at the festival. I had planned to participate, but too many problems cropped up so it turns out I’m not going to be in the festival after all.
But hey, I still got my art up on the bus stops. I think that’s pretty cool.
