Horizon Festival has a very exciting project that has just hit the streets – the Horizon Art Bus! Turning public transport into public art, we worked closely with local Kabi-Kabi artist Bianca Beetson to wrap the bus in her artwork Sunrise: Ba’boon bi’ra.
The Art Bus forms part of Horizon Festival’s visual arts program and indigenous artist Bianca’s work complements the strength of the First Nation’s events that will feature during this year’s festival.
The Art Bus idea was borne from a desire to take contemporary art to a mass audience, and it’s exciting to see the project come to life.
The Art Bus will travel various routes across the region until October 2018.
A Sunshine Coast Council initiative, the Art Bus is presented in partnership with the Cultural Heritage Levy, GoTransit Media Group and SunBus.
Take a photo of the Art Bus and share it on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #horizonartbus and tagging @horizonartfest to go in the draw to win 2 tickets to comedian Arj Barker's show at The Shed on 1 September 2018.
