Local art and public spaces go hand-in-hand, and we’re glad that Muni will once again serve as a mobile gallery for the citizens of San Francisco.
SFMTA is partnering with San Francisco Beautiful and The Poetry Society of America to showcase the work of five local artists and five local poets on our hella local public transit system. In its sixth year, the Muni Art theme is, appropriately, “San Francisco United.” Look for the works on display inside 100 Muni buses through April.
The 2021 Muni artists are:
- Kundan Baidwan
- Agustina Caprioglio
- John Keating
- Deirdre Weinberg (featured recently on the Muni Diaries podcast with fellow artist and Muni Diaries Live alum Kurt Schwartzmann)
- Wes Wellner
The 2021 Muni poets are:
