Nevada County Connects and Nevada County Now Encourage You to Vote for the Bus Art

A colorful rainbow art palette and brush caricature with the words Vote for the bus art!

Nevada County Transit is pleased to announce their new brands Nevada County Connects (formerly Gold Country Stage) and Nevada County Now (formerly Gold Country Lift). 

In celebration of the new branding and as the only rural county with two (2) Cultural Arts Districts, a public art installation featuring eleven (11) Nevada County Connects buses is underway. The goal of this project is to raise awareness surrounding available transit by highlighting art that exemplifies the cultural diversity, love for the outdoors, and creativity of our community. The artwork created for this project reflects what draws the artist to Nevada County explains Robin VanValkenburgh, Transit Services Division Manager.

For the art to truly reflect our community, community participation is key. To vote for your favorite design, please visit  Voting only takes a minute or two, please be sure to Vote for Art!

A bit more about the public art process, this process included a call to local artists to submit their personal art in hopes of making our local buses stand out as well as feature the true Nevada County feel. Artists were encouraged to create a visual representation of their “version” of Nevada County in the form of a design. The deadline to submit artwork was May 14, 2021. The pieces then went through an extensive jurying process for fit, style, and ultimately ranking. The seven (7) pieces selected represent the results of the process, view Bus Wrap Homepage and pieces. The final piece of artwork selected by the community through public participation will be displayed as a vinyl bus wrap on eleven buses. The artist of this piece will be awarded $3,000.

We look forward to revealing the final selection! And think of us for your transportation needs.
