San Francisco Beautiful and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) present Muni Art 2018. Partnering with the Poetry Society of America (sponsors of Poetry in Motion®) and Supervisor London Breed, Muni Art 2018 will transform ordinary buses into art galleries and for the first time local poetry will be included. The 100 Muni Art buses will showcase this year’s theme, “The Art of Poetry in San Francisco”. Five preselected poems will be interpreted visually by this year’s winners.
Given the extensive timeframe for soliciting, judging, and selecting artists, we are seeking your investment now to ensure the Muni Art Project 2018 is fully funded. Click here for details to support Muni Art.
This project, which is a first for San Francisco, breaks down every barrier to traditional fine art galleries by enabling every Muni rider to encounter a real art gallery just by getting on a bus. “Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.” Pablo Picasso
