Bus Sculptures

Twenty-eight new Routemaster bus sculptures were unveiled in Trafalgar Square today. Wendy Hurrell took a BBC video team along to view the painted sculptures, a sample of 60 commissioned by Transport for London for its Year of the Bus in association with Wild in Art (CLICK). They will be spread along 3 London trails, around Westminster, the Thames and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Shown is artist Thomas W. Dowdeswell beside his painted bus entitled Come Rain or Come Shine. In the background is Oliver Dean's Busby bus. All the buses will be auctioned for 3 charities in 2015: Kids Company, Transaid and the London Transport Museum (CLICK).
