The artwork that will grace the sides of three Asheville city buses has already been chosen, but Mountain Xpress is appealing the public art project to the court of public opinion. Tell us — what art would you have chosen?
The city’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department recently announced that three local artists have been chosen to have their artwork appear on buses as part of the city’s first-ever “Art on Transit” bus art competition. The pieces were chosen by a five-person panel, and approved by the city’s Public Art Board.
Members of the public didn’t get a chance to weigh in. Here at Xpress, we wondering what the public would have chosen. So here’s your chance.
