RIDE Solutions sponsored the 2nd Annual Art of Mobility award at the Taubman Museum of Art’s Sidewalk Art Show this past May. And the winner is…
…Roanoke, VA artist Leah Thompson, for her piece Metro I. We were excited this year to recognize an artist who had drawn her inspiration directly from the valley’s transit system. Leah rode many Valley Metro routes seeking inspiration for her work. We were especially pleased to see the transit experience rendered into such a colorful, abstract image.
Ms. Thompson actually had two different paintings that we had to choose between, both images from within a Valley Metro bus but each from different perspectives.
Congratulations to Ms. Thompson, and we look forward to seeing next year’s entries!
