Imagine this as a bus.

The Orange Show and IKEA Houston have collaborated on the Orange Show Art Bus, a mobile art classroom to be dispatched to Houston-area schools with limited or no arts funding. Families are invited to Ikea Plaza on I-10 At Antoine to experience the new bus on Friday March 29from 11am – 4pm.

Originally a 1964 mobile X-ray unit, the 40-foot bus was painted by local artist Brian Zievert to mimic the Orange Show Monument, and has been rebuilt into a roving art classroom holding up to 30 students. IKEA Houston has supplied all of the art supplies, furniture, fabric, carpeting, and lighting. Curriculum for the Bus-Art program is being finalized, the bus will hit the road during the 2013-14 school year.
