About The Art Bus Project Inc.

The Art Bus Project is a nonprofit organization and mobile exhibit dedicated to public access to art and a creative agenda. Housed in a repurposed school bus, it's a traveling showcase bringing artists' work to eight American towns. At each stop, we'll host workshops designed to foster imaginative thought and action, inviting the public on board to experience art, meet artists, and get inspired.
This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to The Art Bus Project Inc.. .
