Are you passionate about the Arts? Education? Do you want to help beautify our City and generate a shared interest in the lives of Dallas students? All while Promoting the history and culture of Dallas’ unique communities? Sponsor a bus stop in Dallas designed and created in tandem with local artists and DISD students through the Mayor’s Star Council.

 The Mayor’s Star Council (MSC) is teaming up with DART, DISD and local Dallas artists on a new initiative—The Bus Stop Project—and we want you to join us. Together with our partners, the MSC is creating the opportunity for artwork designed and envisioned by local high school students to be showcased at select DART bus stops throughout the City of Dallas. Each unique art installation will:

Encourage local DISD students to envision and take ownership for the future of their communities. Working with our team of artists, students will envision the future of their neighborhoods while connecting that vision to the recognition and honor of their community’s past.

Highlight the history and culture of the neighborhood in Dallas it is located in. This project promotes the strong heritage of our communities in Southern Dallas by highlighting the stories and history that aren’t always visible in locations visited by hundreds to thousands daily.

Connect Northern & Southern Dallas. By offering a uniquely creative opportunity for investment, the Bus Stop Project facilitates the economic and cultural linkage of south and north through enabling Dallas-based donors and corporations to consider and invest in Southern Dallas. Sister stops offer the additional opportunity for students and all interested Dallas residents to “follow the trail” or bus route connecting two Dallas communities.

Incorporate the brand or logo of the sponsor. This is a creative and incomparable opportunity for your brand to be seen by thousands of individuals for a minimum of two years. The Bus Stop Project offers a unique way to highlight your organization making an impact in our City.

 

Two Ways to Engage:

1. Sponsor a Bus Stop in Southern Dallas: $10,000 minimum contribution
