#About Art in Transit

Art in Transit is a multifaceted public art initiative facilitated by the Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology. Recognizing the rapid pace of growth, movement, and development in the Bangalore metropolis, Art in Transit generates a stimulating dialogue between people and the urban spaces that they inhabit. This composite discourse instigates an extensive range of meaningful, pertinent and pervasive artistic interventions in spaces of transience. The project creates a dynamic platform for diverse voices in contemporary public art practice to converge within the rich and resonant urban context of Bangalore For more information check
