Student Art Featured on TARC "Compassion Bus"

Thursday April 5, 2012

Bus featuring artwork unveiled at Louisville Zoo

Thirteen local children have been named winners of TARC’s annual Design A Bus competition and will get to see their artwork adorn a bus that will be unveiled at the Louisville Zoo tomorrow morning.

Participants were asked to produce artwork following the theme “Helping Others – Building A Compassionate City.” The 13 winners, ranging from grades 1-8, were selected out of 250 entries from almost 20 local schools as best illustrating that theme.

“It was thrilling to see all these talented students enter this contest with such creativity and thoughtfulness,” said Executive Director J. Barry Barker. “The 13 winners can see their artwork on the bus, and there are many others who submitted outstanding work.”

Approximately 75 TARC employees helped judge entries. The winners will attend a party and awards ceremony at the zoo beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday that starts with the bus unveiling.
