In 2017/2018 we placed an open call for BRT artworks submissions. Selected artworks are undergoing implementation against the steel and glass panels of the new Reya Vaya stations along Louis Botha. Check out some of the fabulous results of this process below. We look forward sharing more stories and profiles during 2019. Click on the image to find out where the station is and who created the original artwork.
