WRTA Kicks Off New Art On The Move Campaign

The Mahoning Valley is home to art that inspires and moves us — that’s why WRTA is recognizing local artists with the Art on the Move Campaign.

Local creators are asked to submit their artwork illustrating public transportation in the Valley. Nine entries will be chosen to be displayed on the special “Mobile Art Gallery” that will be on the side of a large WRTA bus (see below). The nine winners will also receive a $100 VISA gift card, recognition at the Art On The Move kick-off event, and featured on WRTA’s social media, TV commercials, and digital sign at Federal Station.

Mobile Art Gallery

Registration ended on Friday, June 30 and is now closed. 

Artwork submissions are due by Friday, July 7. Only artwork from creators who registered will be accepted.

Your original artwork must be square and created in one of the following mediums:

  • Hand drawn/painted
  • Or computer generated original artwork (Exclusions include: stock art or clip art.)
