Barbara Kruger wrapped a school bus, addressing the importance of arts education in Los Angeles public schools. Her work is universally known for its bold, eye-catching design, and philosophical themes. The artist’s project for Arts Matter, a philanthropic organization, rendered in Kruger’s signature style, addressed directly and urgently the importance of education, especially in the arts. Kruger’s statement, Art is as heavy as sorrow, as light as a breeze, as bright as an idea.. emphasizes the fluid nature of art. At the same time, Kruger stresses that art remains a crucial, indispensible part of a successful educational system. School Bus also references an earlier bus wrap Kruger created for New York City’s Public Art Fund in 1997 (photo below).
