BUS is a bus stop in Baltimore, USA, in which we find the letters B, U and S as some large sized sculptures. Each letter has 14 meters high and 7 meters wide. These huge letters are actually the space where you expect the bus to arrive, but also, they are a mean of recreation and entertainment. BUS is made of wood and steel, materials usually used for urban furniture. The three letters of BUS are large enough to accommodate four people each, to protect them from sun, rain or wind.
The letters allow to those who are waiting for the bus, to sit in different positions or just stand. Such bus stop are definitely something new and attractive, that add a plus of charm to the city. This is a permanent public art project supported by Creative Alliance and Southeast Community Development Corporation in conjunction with the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts, the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC), and SPAIN arts & culture. It is part of the initiative TRANSIT, Creative Placemaking with Europe in Baltimore. Via mmmm….
