Next Stop: Boneyard Arts Festival

In its fifteenth year, this vibrant, annual arts festival will permeate Champaign-Urbana & surrounds next Thursday, April 6 thru Sunday, April 9.


Champaign County, IL- 40 North, Champaign County’s Arts Council, will host their annual Boneyard Arts Festival throughout Champaign County over 4 days next week. The events will be held in over 100 venues and feature the work of local sculptors, painters and photographers, as well as performances by musicians, actors, dancers and more.

Even MTD buses will serve as galleries of sorts, featuring local art as part of our ongoing collaboration with 40 North for MTD Art.

Coinciding with Mom’s Weekend at Illinois, Boneyard draws thousands of students and community members alike. View participating local artists and peruse events, venues and mediums, then head over to cumtd.com to plan your trips on public transit.

“MTD ART began with an idea from a passenger. He noticed the interior advertising space on our buses and wondered if it could hold more than messages from community businesses and organizations. This passenger was also an artist, so when he called MTD’s Marketing Director Jan Kijowski he pitched the idea of community art submissions occupying some of the overhead panels.” :The Inside Lane, November 2013
