5 new artistic designs will be added to Portland bus shelters

Artist Ebenezer Akakpo sits in the bus shelter he designed on Congress Street in Portland on June 17, 2021. Akakpo, who was born in Ghana, drew inspiration from traditional Ghanaian symbols for hope and friendship. 

Waiting for a bus in Portland is getting a bit more vibrant with five more bus shelters getting new artistic designs.

The initiative gives selected artists the opportunity to showcase their skills and promote the Portland Public Transit resources.

Creative Portland is overseeing the project as the official arts agency for the city.

The project first started in 2017 and is now in its second phase.

The installation next month will bring the total number of creative bus shelters in Portland to nine.
