Our nonprofit organization is on a mission to revamp public transit, making it not only accessible but also a source of community pride. We believe art has the power to bring people together and brighten their day. That's why we're calling on artists like you to join us in this exciting venture.

Your Art, Our Canvas

Imagine your artwork gracing the exterior of a public transit van. The bright, bold colors and intriguing designs catching the eye of passersby. Your creativity, combined with our vision, can transform these vehicles into symbols of inclusivity, joy, and community spirit. We're looking for artists who can turn these vans into unique and unforgettable experiences for all riders.
