The goal of the project was to design and create an artwork that will enhance the Portland public art landscape, bring attention to bus shelters and provide impactful messaging under the banner of discovering and celebrating our cultural, and environmental diversity.
This Creative Portland bus shelter project was made possible in part by support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
The bus shelter is located at 519 Congress Street, Portland, Maine.
The panels of the bus shelter are stamped with outlines of traditional Ghanaian Adinkra symbols for hope and friendship.
Ghanaian artist Ebenezer Akakpo presents a unique collection of ideas and creations with the visual Language symbols or Adinkra symbols from Ghana.
