Public Art for the Community - Art 226
Bus Stop Galleries - Spring 2006

Below are photos of Bus Stop Galleries, an Art 226, Public Art and the Community class project, in which students created site-specific images for Eastern's bus shelters. Their goal was to enliven the university's landscape and unite north and south campus with a visual "map" of the campus for students and visitors.

The images were created in Adobe Illustrator and sent electronically to be printed on low-tack vinyl, a non-destructive, removable material that adheres by clinging to the shelter's glass surface. The images are secured with a plexiglass shield, designed and created by Eastern's Facilites department Bus Stop Galleries was made possible by the support of an AAUP Faculty Development Grant.
