The Sunrail Museum of Art is coming... sort of. The actual name of this creative new project is "Art is Moving." Curator Nicki Drumb, the project's brainchild, will hang art from regional artists on Sunrail trains thanks to her $1,000 grant from The Awesome Foundation.
Art will be seen starting March 10, 2017. Each window will feature a piece of art. The pieces will be printed onto perforated vinyl and placed on all the windows. Two interior partitions on the mid-level. Window art is re-produced and displayed on the outside of the first, second and third levels of the train car.
