The City of Raleigh is turning the GoRaleigh R-LINE into the ART-LINE to celebrate the ten-year anniversary of the Art-On-The-Move public art project. From 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday May 20th the bus will become a moving stage featuring performances by actors, comedians, poets, and musicians.
Performers include Carly Prentice Jones, Christiane, Clean Stand-Up Comedy on the R-LINE, Dasan Ahanu, Dwight Hawkins & the Piedmont Highballers, the Nickel Creek Shakespeare Girls, and Seed Art Share. Attendees can enjoy serenades, jokes, spoken word poetry, hip-hop, spontaneous Shakespeare performances, and site specific theater tailored for the bus.
Shows will begin and end at bus-stop R-13 in front of the Raleigh Convention Center (500 S. Salisbury St), but attendees can hop on or off the ART-LINE at any of the stops. The ART-LINE is free and open to the public.
The construction crews are making progress on the north side, but there is still a lot to come. That is why it is important that businesses owners and managers join us for this month’s construction update meeting.
We will have exhibits showing what construction activities each property will encounter in the coming months, and the Project Manager, Richard Dickie will outline the construction schedule for the north side.
Pre-hearing open house: 4-6:30 p.m.
Formal presentation: 7 p.m.
The formal hearing will include an explanation of the location of the detailed study alternatives, land acquisition and relocation requirements as well as project procedures.
The presentation and all comments will be recorded and included in a written transcript. These comments will be considered in the selection of the Preferred Alternative for the improvements along the project corridor.
NCDOT representatives will also be available at the public meeting to answer questions.
The Capital Area Ride for Safety (CARS) ride aims to promote the need to educate, raise awareness and encourage positive interaction between motorists and bicyclists. Proceeds benefit BikeWalk NC and our bicycle safety education program.
