Beginning in 2013, Tulsa Transit and AcrobatAnt, a local advertising agency, teamed up to spotlight creativity and boost ridership with their Art in Transit initiative.
Art in Transit promotes art and artists of all types by making their creations moving, working parts of the urban environment. Putting art in unexpected places, like buses, is a great way to beautify Tulsa’s landscape and display our city’s artistic horsepower.
In late 2014, the call for entries went out for the coming year, and I submitted a design comprised of multiple patterns as stripes in a visually intense final pattern. To my surprise, this design was chosen as the winner, and subsequently a bus drove around the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma for the duration of 2015 carrying these images.
