2019 Muni Art

Service Affected

Joining San Francisco Beautiful and the Poetry Society of America, the SFMTA announced the five winners of the 2019 Muni Art project, celebrating the theme "Connecting Our Community.” 

The five winning artists will have their newly created work presented along with five poems selected by the Poetry Society of America, all by local poets, displayed on 100 Muni buses that will be transformed into rolling art galleries beginning in January 2019. 

2019 Muni artists:

Bhavna Misra- Alameda:

Crystal Vielula - San Francisco:

People sit in and on a 1964 Pontiac convertable surrounded by flowers surround by river cliffs, a plain, and an underwater scene with fish
