Public transit royalty

Over the Twitter wires, via @ErinNorton, comes this gem from Media Bistro about how the Art Institute of Chicago has placed thrones on various rail lines around town. The institute then asked riders to take photos of themselves sitting in the decorated  seats and submit them to the school’s Facebook page for a chance to win a free museum tour.

ErinNorton asked the obvious question: “can someone please do this for SF muni?” Hear that, SFMOMA?

Instead, Muni riders have been taking the matter of creative seating on public transit into their own hands. And god bless them, too.
