The set of cement benches are covered with tile mosaics and stone designs. At the base of each bench, you can read a quote from world-famous artist Pablo Picasso, which says, “Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
The benches are a pleasant surprise for anyone expecting the usual cold, dreary bus shelter furniture. They’re enough to make you stop and realize that art is everywhere, even in the most everyday places, should you choose to seek it out.
The bus shelter is located near the Blue Star Arts Complex, a non-profit art institution in San Antonio’s King William Cultural Arts District.
