MARTA launched a new program called Artbound as an attempt to transform and enhance the experience of people who commute using MARTA’s transit system. To fulfill this mission, MARTA’s Art in Transit administrator Katherine Dirga oversees the program and guides it to assure high-quality pieces are installed that mirror the “vibrancy and history of the communities we serve.” Artwork will not be the only media outlet that Artbound uses to engage MARTA’s commuters. Along with new art pieces, performing arts will be showcased as well to assist in representing Atlanta throughout MARTA stations.
