Bus Shelters Poster Art Exhibition
Tuesday 3 May - Friday 3 June 2011
Bus Shelters was a youth participation programme delivered by London Transport Museum as part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad programme Stories of the World.
Between February 2010 and March 2011 the museum worked with five groups of young people from across London to explore the theme of journeys. Using the Museum’s collections as inspiration each group collaborated with professional artists including filmmakers, illustrators and lyricists. They created artwork that reflected their interests, ideas and opinions about journeys and what travelling around London means to them.
Using poster art, innovative Bluetooth technology and glass panel displays the outcomes of each project were installed in a bus shelter local to the communities of each group.
This exhibition brings together the poster art and films of all five bus shelter projects for the very first time.
