Transit Art: Can You Spot BART?

Can you spot pieces of Bay Area transit in this piece of mixed media art by reader Tofu St. John? You might remember him from “Project Art a Day.” His newest piece incorporates pieces of transit ephemera from public transportation systems across the country.

Here’s what he has to say about the new piece (available at Society6):

I love public transportation. When I travel to different cities I always seek out the adventure of public transportation. There is something magical about emerging from a subway station in a strange city for the first time. This new piece is made up of public transportation maps from around the world. From the San Francisco Bay Area’s Muni, AC Transit and BART to DC’s Metro, to London’s Underground and many more.
