Tom Tom Founders Festival
Artist Paul Hostetler working on 2017 City Art Bus, illustrating colorful dinosaurs roaming the prehistoric plains.

The City Art Bus Competition is a part of Tom Tom’s ‘City as Canvas’ initiative, which transforms public spaces through murals, public performances, and art installations through the help of local and regional artists and organizers.

This year’s City Art Buses will transform a 35’ clean diesel CAT bus AND a 28’ JAUNT bus into mobile murals that will be seen by hundreds of thousands of commuters. Make your voice heard and vote today!
