Cache County School District and Cache Valley Transit District unveil public art event at Summerfest.

Cache County School District (CCSD) and Cache Valley Transit District (CVTD) have partnered to bring together our 2nd annual Art in Transit: “Bringing Communities Together” Project.

This project was created to bring art made by children into public places and showcase student artwork inside and outside CVTD’s buses throughout Cache Valley. 

Currently, we have 7 buses en route with artwork inside created by students from Providence Elementary during the pilot program, 2011-2012.  The pilot project was supported solely by local business sponsorship.

We have two exciting projects that will be unveiled this week at Logan’s Summerfest Art Festival, June 13-15, a dual unveiling of new student work inside and outside the buses!  One CVTD bus will be parked at the North East corner of the Logan Tabernacle parking lot showcasing artwork created by students at Summit Elementary and local High School students. The bus will be on display June 13 & 14, 11am-8pm and June 15, 10am-8pm.

Art in Transit: Summit Elementary 2nd Graders
Over the past few months, 2nd graders at Summit Elementary created arts integrated paintings, prints and collages in response to stories they read in class with Artist in Resident Kristi Grussendorf.  The students’ original artwork has been reproduced onto vinyl bus placards and installed inside 6 CVTD buses to be unveiled at Logan’s Summerfest, June 13-15.  This project has been supported by grants from Crayola, Utah Division of Arts and Museums, Summerfest and several local businesses.

Art in Transit: Design a Transit Wrap High School Winning Design
Cache County School District is ready to unveil our new pilot project: Design a Transit Wrap High School Contest. The winning transit wrap design by Sara Patch will be unveiled on the outside of a CVTD bus at Logan’s Summerfest, June 13-15 and will be on display for one year.  During Summerfest we will also showcase all of the high school entries.  Sara Patch, a Mountain Crest student was selected from over 35 entries by the Art in Transit arts committee made up of CVTD members, local city council member, Summerfest Director and Cache County School District Arts Coordinator.

Come out and support this exciting dual unveiling and first ever public art event in Cache Valley!
