CALLING ALL ARTISTS!  Help us reimagine the Green Street Bus Shuttle Area

The Vergennes Partnership has been awarded a $15,000 animating infrastructure grant to re-imagine the existing Tri-Valley Transit (TVT) bus shelter area on Green Street near Main Street/Route 22A. In collaboration with the City of Vergennes and TVT, the Partnership is in search of an artist or artist team to re-design/ re-construct the existing space.

Based on the input from the community which paved the way for the recent Municipal Public Art plan, this project is the first of additional installations envisioned
throughout Vergennes on both public and private properties. The finished installation should add to a sense of community and inclusivity for both residents and visitors. It should also be non-political and have a universal appeal. The chosen project must, ideally be completed by December 1, 2023 or at the latest, March of 2024. It will be maintained by Tri-Valley Transit and the City of Vergennes.
