Route 1 Ride Collaborative today announced a reopening and extension to its Call for Artists and designers to develop an original work of art. The winning design will be showcased as a bus wrap highlighting the many arts, cultural and entertainment amenities along the Route 1 Corridor, and increase ridership as a way to visit and explore Route 1. The deadline for submission is Friday, May 4, 2012


The wrap design, which will be highlighted on TheBus: Route 17, should inspire Route 1 communities from Mount Rainier to College Park and highlight the unique charms of living, working, and playing in Prince George’s County’s Route One Corridor communities.


In connection with Prince George’s County DPW&T, The Route 1 Ride Collaborative is seeking proposals for original, two-dimensional designs that will be wrapped on the Route 1 Ride buses. One design will be selected to be featured on three buses for a period of at least three years, beginning in the Summer of 2012. The three selected finalist artist/s / designer/s will receive a $500.00 honorarium for their designs. The final selected artist/s / designer/s receive a $4,000.00 honorarium for their design. The project is generously sponsored by The Route 1 Ride Collaborative and its Municipal members in celebration of the role that the arts play in the Gateway Arts District and the revitalization of Prince George’s County.


Emerging and established artists and designers are encouraged to submit an application. The deadline for submission is Friday, May 4, 2012. For additional information on the Route 1 Wrap Call for Artists or to download an application, please visit www.Route1Ride.com
