San Francisco Beautiful

What local art would you like to see on Muni?

San Francisco Beautiful and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) present Muni Art 2018. Partnering with the Poetry Society of America (sponsors of Poetry in Motion®) and Supervisor London Breed, Muni Art 2018 will transform ordinary buses into art galleries and for the first time local poetry will be included. The 100 Muni Art buses will showcase this year’s theme, “The Art of Poetry in San Francisco”. Five preselected poems will be interpreted visually by this year’s winners.

Only Bay Area artists are eligible to submit applications for the Muni Art contest and this year over 40 local artists vied for the five slots available. Selected by a committee representing local galleries, artists and arts institutions these ten finalists now advance to a public vote. SF Beautiful is proud to announce the Muni Art 2018 Finalists:
