Normally I’m not a fan of people yelling on the bus, but this week I will be making an exception.
This week, Columbus College of Art & Design (CCAD) students will be transforming a COTA bus into an interactive art installation and public conversation hub. The collaborative installation, called Mobilize, is a community programming initiative on a COTA bus stationed at Broad and High from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., April 23-27.
The programs are free and open to the public and include discussions, performances, poetry readings, yoga, and more. There is even a storytelling segment from bus drivers, which is honestly what I’m looking forward to the most. Well, that or the face painting, it’s a close call.
The project is a partnership between CCAD, Capital Crossroads Special Improvement District and COTA. Programs have been organized by: CCAD’s Art & Social Practice Artists Nashwa Bawuah, Alexa Bolton, Betsy Corcoran, Katy Daiber, Allison Duemmel, Eris Lynn, Tylan McCollum, Brilee McPherson, Laura Toogood, Kim Webb, and Gabriel Yahl; professional and emerging visiting artists; guest speakers; and the general public.
