Thank you to everyone who voted for the 2019 Art Bus!  Stay tuned, winners will be announced later this spring.


Since 2014, CAT has partnered with the Tom Tom Founders Festival to promote art in the community. The initiative, titled City as a Canvas, includes wall murals, street paintings, and bus wraps.  To date, four artists have had their work transform city buses into moving murals.

These moving murals are placed into regular transit service allowing residents, visitors, and passengers the opportunity to enjoy colorful displays.

The mural itself is a giant removable adhesive sticker.  The sticker is temporary and can be removed without damaging the underlying paint and graphics.
