Art in Transit 2022 – Don’t Forget


The excitement is building for the 2nd annual Art in Transit exhibit and competition which is being hosted by the RAL Art Center.  We are aware of many paintings currently being produced for this exhibit and are excited to see the entries from many of the regions talented artists.


As a reminder, entries are due to be delivered to RAL on Monday, April 18th between the hours of 10:00 and 12:00 noon.  Artists can enter up to two pieces with the entry fee being $20 per entry.


This year’s award winners will be recognized at the ‘Art in Transit’ 2022 reception being held at RAL on Friday night, May 20th from 5:00-7:00 pm.   The culmination of the reception will once again occur when a copy of the first-place entry is unveiled on the side of a Bay Transit bus.

In order for your artwork to fit perfectly on the side of the bus without significant cropping, your piece should be 18 ½” wide x 10” high or any ratio of this size either smaller or larger.  If your entry is not within this ratio and you are the winning artist, there will be some cropping necessary.

This year we are fortunate to have wonderful sponsors that see the tremendous value this event brings to RAL and Bay Transit, both non-profit organizations making a difference in our community.


We are cannot wait to see your entries!
