Milwaukee, WI – On May 25, 2018, at 7:00 p.m., the Bus Project MKE will host a fundraiser at After Gallery (2225 N. Humboldt Ave.) for a new project that features local artists’ designs on bus shelters throughout Milwaukee. The event is hosted by local artist Lybra Ray and After Gallery owner Flow Johnson.

This project is inspired by a similar project Lybra started in Sheboygan, WI putting local artists’ artwork inside of city buses. When she approached MCTS with the idea, they suggested putting designs on the bus shelters.

The first artists to join this project include: Bigshot Robot, Charity Ekpo, CK Ledesma, Kristen Lopez, LaNia Sproles, Libby VandebunteSantos Kahlo, and Shawn DeKay.

They are attempting to raise $2,000 to get this project running. The money raised will allow them to pay for the vinyl prints that will be attached to the shelters, as well as promotional materials.

The first shelters will be revealed in Bay View and Riverwest on June 14.
