Art Is Moving On The Train Tracks
Next time you’re sitting in your car waiting for the SunRail train to rumble through a crossing,take a closer look because one of the train cars may be a bit more colorful than usual.
Art is Moving aims to expose riders to the work of Central Florida artists.
Orlando artist and community event organizer, Nicki Drumb, came up with the idea. She received a $1,000 “micro” grant from a group called the Awesome Foundation.
Drumb says the long term goal for the project is for the train car to be a revolving gallery with different artists and themes every six months.
90.7’s Matthew Peddie hopped on the train at the Church street station to talk with Drumb and a group of artists.
The youngest Artist on the train is Aurora Grace Mataluni- who just turned 12 and is riding the train with her father, Michael Mataluni.
We also heard from artists Leona Bessner, Bridget Floyd Zoltec, and the project creator, Nicki Drumb.
