Seeking local artists!

Smart Trips invites you to show your work and your support for our program at an event Friday, May 1 that will be part of Knoxville’s First Friday art walk – your work could be used by Smart Trips in future marketing and awareness campaigns and the winner will receive a $200 grand prize!

Smart Trips Month is held every May and includes a series of educational, fun and health-promoting events throughout the area. We have partnered with KAT to host a First Friday Art Bus – the public will be invited to board the bus, learn about public transit and view local art inspired by transportation and commuting issues. This is where you come in!

Create a work of art that can be displayed in a KAT bus on Friday, May 1, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The work should be inspired by our goal of improving air quality and the quality of life in our community through promoting alternatives to driving alone. Submissions may be used in the future promotion of our program through marketing and public awareness campaigns.
Artists who submit work should be available Friday, May 1, at 4 p.m. to display their work and should be available again at 8 p.m. to retrieve their work. All artists are also invited to join us throughout the event as we meet the public, appreciate your artwork and promote alternatives to driving alone.
A jpeg photograph of the finished product must be emailed to smarttrips@knoxtrans.org by Monday, April 20 at 5 p.m. You will then be notified by email to confirm your appearance at our First Friday Art Bus event.
Questions? Call Elizabeth Wright at 215-2916 or email smarttrips@knoxtrans.org
Thanks for your support and creativity – we look forward to working with you!
