Art & Bus: European artists brighten the city

Twenty-two artists from Normandy and outside France are on display from July 1 to 26, 2022, in 173 bus and tram shelters in the Métropole Rouen Normandie.

Art & Bus returns for its second year in July 2022 in a display of artists’ works on bus and tram stops throughout the Métropole Rouen Normandie intercommunal structure. What’s more, the invited artists are a kaleidoscope of international talent.

Many of the talents on display are members of the CreArt network, which promotes artistic exchange between a number of European cities: Valladolid, Spain; Kaunas, Lithuania; Aveiro, Portugal; Zagreb, Croatia; Genoa and Lecce, Italy; Liverpool, United Kingdom; Katowice and Lublin, Poland; Skopje, Macedonia; and Clermont-Ferrand and Rouen, France.

It is therefore no coincidence that some artists on this list hail from cities that are European city-friends of Rouen Seine Normande 2028.

You can find all the Art & Bus display locations on our online map. Below are some of the artists who invite you all aboard this summer 2022 for the European Capital of Culture:
