Northside Bus Shelters Transformed with Artwork

En Español

Metro Transit riders on Madison’s Northside will now see area bus shelters transformed to include the design work of Daniella Echeverria.

Echeverria was selected by a committee of Northside residents to create six silhouette images that may appear on benches, bus shelters, t-shirts, banners and numerous other places throughout Northside neighborhoods.

The idea for customizing Northside bus shelters stemmed from a neighborhood planning process that began in 2009 and was supported by past Madison Common Council member Satya Rhodes-Conway, and current Alders Anita Weir (District 18) and Larry Palm (District 12).

Creating these images was part of a large and ongoing community effort to share pride of the cultural diversity, natural spaces, parklands, gardening, recreation, and economic opportunities unique to the Northside. 

The project is funded through a grant from Madison's Community Development Division and is being administered by Grant Administrator Michael Miller. Public art charettes and art selection meetings were staffed by City Arts Administrator Karin Wolf.
