For as long as MTD has existed, its mission has been to seamlessly transport the rider from point A to point B. With MTD ART: Moving Pictures Through Your Neighborhood, they are focusing on a different type of transportation: transportation of the mind! The inclusion of art on all MTD buses is not to be understated. With this new collaborative program from 40 North, MTD, and Dixon Graphics, riders will be treated to the finest artwork that this community has to offer while selected artists will have the opportunity to share their talents with a whole new audience. It shows that transportation can be more than getting the rider from one spot to another -- it can also be an introduction to the transcendent power of art!
Four selected artists will be featured on the interior overhead panels of every MTD bus for a period of approximately 3 months. A new set will be posted each quarter: November 1, February 1, May 1, and August 1.
