Art In Transit Policy

RINSE + REPEAT

Rinse + Repeat is a unique new art project featuring the work of eleven Atlanta poets whose poems have been stenciled onto the concrete at ten bus shelters around metro Atlanta, with a poem by lead artist and curator ANON The Griot featured at West End Station. The poems are invisible at first, but appear magically whenever rain falls, creating a pleasant surprise on a rainy day, just when it’s needed most!

Rinse + Repeat is presented by Rapport Agency and was curated by local poet, author, rapper and teacher ANON The Griot

Railtalk Re-Connect

Railtalk Re-Connect is the expansion of our popular 2019 project Railtalk, an intervention created by Dutch designers Bouke Bruins and Wouter Corvers that invites MARTA riders to express themselves or enjoy reading the thoughts of their fellow passengers. Re-connect with Railtalk at these stations through October 31, 2022: Five Points, College Park, Doraville, H.E. Holmes, Indian Creek, Lindbergh Center, North Springs, and West End. 
Railtalk Re-Connect is presented by Flux Projects and is a part of the Atlanta Design Festival, October 1 – 9, 2022.
