Last year since 2007 September until years end New York City has visually transformed. Taxi, yellow icon, blossomed in all colors and became a mobile artistic canvas, or Garden in Transit. This art, education and creative therapy project was created by 23 000 children and adult volunteers. They have painted 80,000 flowers on 750,000 square feet of adhesive panels for a four month public art exhibition featured on thousands of city taxis.
In 2007 yellow cab commemorated the 100th anniversary.
Garden in Transit was part of Portraits of Hope project.
“Portraits of Hope” is creative therapy program for seriously ill and physically disabled children. All projects culminate in the visual transformation of public environment.
