CHAMPAIGN-URBANA - Expect to see some artwork rolling around town. Art, from local artists, will soon be displayed inside CU Mass Transit District buses as part of a new project.

Every quarter the buses will display different works of art. The idea was started by photographer Don Fonner. He's hoping everyone in the community will take part.

"It's intended to be a community project," said Fonner. "If you're old enough to create art, if you're young enough to create art. Submit it. Get it on the bus."

The displays start this week and will be featured on more than 90 buses. CUMTD says it'll help brighten the commute.
