OmniRide & KPWB Bus Stop Beautification Project

OmniRide and Keep Prince William Beautiful (KPWB)—along with Prince William County Neighborhood Services, Parks, Recreation & Tourism; Apple Federal Credit Union, and Amazon Web Services in Communities (AWS)—has unveiled a Bus Stop Beautification Project, which transforms designated bus shelters in Prince William County into canvases of public art designed by local artists. This will be an annual project.

During this first year, four local bus shelter locations will feature work by a different artist under the theme of environmental stewardship. Artists were selected through an open call for proposals by KWPB. Artists were encouraged to visit their selected shelter locations to see the neighborhood, surrounding community, and its cultural influences to inspire them to create their works. Each artist received a $500 grant to create the artwork and will receive half of the proceeds gained at an auction for the sale of their artwork after a year.
