Please join Mayor Eric Genrich, Transit Director Patty Kiewiz, city staff, and several of the artists who worked together to bring this new form of artwork to the community.

DATE: Friday, November 22, 2019

TIME: 10:00 AM

PLACE:  Bus shelter located on the north side of the Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of Brown County, 300 S. Adams St., Green Bay, WI 54301

The piece to be unveiled is titled “Fishbowl” created by Tamara McLean and is on display at the bus stop at Stuart and S. Adams Street. Following the unveiling, people may meet at Grounded Cafe to warm up, talk with the artists and view the other nine artworks.

During the month of June 2019 artwork was sought from local painters, photographers, illustrators, and other artists. Over 100 original submissions from local artists were received, which was narrowed down to ten final images selected by members from Green Bay Metro and the GBPAC. In the fall, these images were printed on vinyl and installed on select shelters throughout the city.

  • Tamara McLean, Fishbowl. Located at 216 Stuart St.
