The Bus Shelter art installations brighten the mundane with original works from Emeryville artists celebrating flora and fauna. The program started in October 2009 and is currently in its 5th iteration. Every four months a new artist has the opportunity to install four original works in four bus shelters. Artists have been chosen through a juried process and employ an amazing range of media, including pen and ink, digital collage, drawings, mixed media sculpture, oil on canvas, painting and collage, scanned plant material, acrylic and oil on panel, and neon sculpture. Selected artists are provided half sized copies of the four works and $1,000 per original image ($4,000).
