WHAT DOES “The Blue Bus Project” DO?
Founded in May 2016, the Blue Bus Project is a platform for participants - neighborhoods, artists, students of all ages - to contribute to their community while enhancing its beauty and cultural identity.
Since its inception, the Blue Bus Project has reached out to several communities, held different programs and commissioned workshops in public parks in Harlem, Governors Island, Socrates Sculpture Park, Lower East Side and Jamaica Queens, ranging from the creation of sculptures to Food and Clothing drives for the needy.
