Help us create a moving masterpiece at Art on the Square in downtown Belleville on Saturday (May 18).

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., painters of all ages are invited to participate in a special Art in Motion bus painting to help transform a St. Clair County Transit District MetroBus into a rolling work of art. The murals on the bus will feature the “Schtick People” sculptures created by architect-artist Gary Karasek, which have been installed along the MetroBikeLink trails in Illinois.

The free bus painting event will take place at the intersection of East Main Street and High Street.

Once completed, the art bus will go into regular service and travel along a variety of bus routes in St. Clair County for the next year. This bus painting event is sponsored by the St. Clair County Transit District.
