[ARCHIVED] Public Art To Be Installed in Bus Shelters

Images of nine works of original art, selected by the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Public Art Commission for the Artistic Bus Shelter Program, will be installed this week at Winston-Salem Transit Authority bus stops throughout Winston-Salem. 

The commission announced the project earlier this year with the goal of enhancing “the interest and aesthetic appeal of the shelters and the riders' experience.” The commission received 20 submissions. 

The nine art works selected by the commission include works by professional and amateur artists. The artists whose work will be installed this week, and the locations, are:

  • Vikki Vassar, “The Safe Bus Company,” Trade Street between 10th and 11th streets.
  • Mike Wilson, “Hanes Hosiery,” North Patterson Avenue south of Akron Drive. 
  • Carlos Gustavo, “Pilot Mountain,” University Parkway and Sturmer Park Circle. 
  • Phebe Pankey, “Simon Green Atkins,” Old Greensboro Road at Atkins High School. 
  • Phebe Pankey, “Bowen Park Neighborhood,” 25th Street and Bowen Boulevard. 
  • Jason Lancaster, “Winston-Salem Landmarks Through Time,” South Stratford Road and Westbrook Plaza Drive. 
  • Carolina Corona, “Bailarina,” Waughtown Street and Broadbay Drive. 
  • Salem Ortiz, “Meet Me on the Southside,” Old Lexington Road at Reuben Hash Boulevard. 
  • Community Design Studio and Carolina Corona, “What do you love about nature?”, Broad Street north of Salem Avenue .

One more artwork, Jameson Filston’s “Hope Without Borders,” will be installed after a new bus shelter is built at Waughtown and Pleasant streets.

The installations are designed to last a year but could be removed early if they are permanently damaged due to weather, graffiti or other factors. More information about the artists, images of their works, and a map showing the bus shelters selected for installations, will be posted at CityofWS.org/PublicArt.

This is the second batch of bus shelters to be designated for the program. In August 2020, images of original works of art were installed in 12 bus shelters throughout the city. Of those 12, two were damaged, but are being reinstalled in different shelters. Owens Daniels' "Catching the A Train" will be installed on Peters Creek Parkway at Parkland High School. Terri Coppola's "Maya Angelou: Rainbow in the Clouds" will be installed on Cloverdale Avenue at Melrose Street.
