Art180 Places Local Art on GRTC Buses

Social media contest seeks to raise awareness of these artists.


So you're out there enjoying your free ride on GRTC this week -- why don't you also help out a local arts non-profit celebrate its 20th anniversary while you're at it?

All it takes is a snap and a post.

Art180 is featuring art on all the buses from the generous artists who work with young people at their nonprofit, in hopes of celebrating all they do. So take a photo of the art when you see it on your bus and post it to social media with the hashtag #IRideWithART180. Do that and you'll be automatically entered in a drawing for a chance to win:

1st place: VMFA Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Family Membership

2nd place: $100 gift card to Max's on Broad

3rd place: 5 pounds of coffee beans from Black Hand Coffee Company, in bags featuring art by 5 of our program leaders

Among the local artists featured are names such as Heidi Trepanier, Hamilton Glass, Mickael Broth, Diego Sanchez, S. Ross Browne, and many more. You can see the full list at the link below.

The winners will be announced on Aug. 17, and as Art180 reminds us, don't forget the more pieces of art you spot, the more chances you have to win. Visit to learn more.
