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.
