Yellow limo transforms into magical art bus
Monday, July 6, 2009 - 22:18
Remember riding the big yellow bus to school? The highly coveted back of the bus was where the cool, older kids sat. The front was reserved for the goody two shoes who sucked up to the mean bus driver. Then there was that mysterious "bus cam." Ancient riders say it was the invisible camera disguised as a mirror that revealed all sorts of bad bus behavior. After all, that is why the red light was ALWAYS on, kids feared the truths of the bus cam...
Well, I stumbled upon a yellow limo that's used beyond public school transportation. Instead, it was created to spread artistic imagination for both the young and the old. All but four of the front seats were taken out to be replaced with shelves of recycled cardboard, tin cans, puzzle pieces, wooden blocks, feathers, fabric scraps, toy cars, buttons, paper, crayons...you name it, it was there.
The best part about the bus is that it runs only on donations. Office supply stores, small companies, neighbors, friends and other art enthusiasts donate surplus goods to the bus. The only thing that is purchased is the glue.
The bus travels to birthday parties, festivals and fairs, educational events or just drives around town looking for a good place to stop for artistic imagination.
I took my camera onboard and shot some footage of the bountiful artistic beauty! Enjoy! peace love and joy
