Art on Dart: Area artists showcase artwork inside DART bus — Jun 25, 2014

Four area artists will exhibit artwork inside a DART bus, beginning today, in a pilot project “Art on DART.”

Sculpture, works on paper and paintings will be showcased in gallery-like displays on the interior of DART bus 1033. The bus will rotate throughout DART services as usual with location updates on Twitter (follow @ridedart). The exhibition will run Thursday, June 26, through Aug. 17.

Local artist and Art on DART curator, Edward Kelley, envisions artwork as something to be shared in unique spaces. Murals are great, museums are wonderful, advertisements clever, but what happens when art shares our daily routine? Art on DART is a sharing of artwork in an everyday setting.

The project and exhibition were organized by artists Edward Kelley and Emily Newman with help from The Greater Des Moines Public Art Foundation and DART.
