2014 has been declared as the Year of the Bus in London. The city’s iconic red double-decker buses are being celebrated through a range of activities and exhibitions that rejoice London bus history. The most recent event in the ‘Year of the Bus’ calendar is the Bus Sculpture Trail – that features work from over 40 illustrators and artists.

London Takes the Bus by Rod Hunt

The event allowed these illustrators and artists to represent visually what the London Bus means to them. London Takes the Bus by Rob Hunt is shown above; he explains the idea for his work came by “looking at the Key Bus Routes in central London maps & seeing that it almost looks like the map is spelling the word ‘Bus’ in the route lines.”

The event has been produced by Wild in Art, an organization that specializes in exhibiting art in public spaces. The sculptures are situated in three areas of the city – Westminster, along the river and around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The sites will remain open until December, after which they will all be auctioned off to raise money for the supported Transport for London charities, Kids Company, Transaid and the London Transport Museum.
