Local Art Adorn’s Bus Stops Around Chapel Hill

The Town of Chapel Hill’s Art + Transit program unveiled new pieces of art adorning nine bus shelters and a bus that celebrate LGBTQIA+ Pride and local diversity. The Art + Transit program aims to “bring more vibrancy to the daily commute,” and commissions local artists from the Triangle. With the new additions to the program, more than 30 bus shelters and three buses now feature artwork.

Art installations first began appearing at bus stops around the area in early 2019, with five spray-painted pieces at shelters highlighting the local community. A bus also drew attention to banned books and featured artwork inspired by historically censored or banned literature.

Calls for future art installations are expected to open this fall and winter. For information, click here.
