Stagecoach East Midlands partner with Hull School of Art and Design to launch Hull Bus Strokes
14 Mar 2017

In celebration of Hull 2017 UK City of Culture, Stagecoach East Midlands has teamed up with the Hull School of Art and Design to transform a double-decker bus into an artistic masterpiece named Hull Bus Strokes.

The students have been asked to produce a design for the bus exterior. The project will form part of their coursework and the winning design, as voted for by Stagecoach and a guest judge, will be painted and displayed on the Hull art bus. The winners will be chosen in April.

The winning composition will be painted onto a double-decker bus, in a street art style, and visitors and residents of Hull will have the opportunity to watch the bus transformed into a visual masterpiece.

Once completed, the bus will be publically unveiled and run on major routes, throughout Hull, for the remainder of the City of Culture year. The bus will create a spectacular moving artist piece, along the streets and roads of Hull, and act as a brilliant showcase for the Hull School of Art and Design.

The project is a fitting tribute to Hull and its students, as the city celebrates being the 2017 UK City of Culture. Michelle Hargreaves, Managing Director of Stagecoach East Midlands, said:

“We are delighted to announce details of our exciting art project with Hull School of Art and Design. The double-decker bus will showcase a truly unique piece of art and, by inviting local people to view the transformation; we are involving the whole community. We hope that people get great enjoyment from seeing this very special bus and traveling aboard it, as it travels along major routes throughout the city in 2017.”

Students from across a range of courses are being invited to put forward their proposals for the project.

Chris Dimmack, of Hull School of Art and Design, said: “We are very excited to work with Stagecoach. This project offers our degree students a valuable opportunity to work with one of the largest bus operators in the UK. The students are looking forward to participating and contributing personally to the UK City of Culture celebrations.

“The final artwork applied to the bus will add an exciting twist to the fabric of the city celebrating the people and rich history of Hull as it tours Bransholme, Greatfield and Orchard Park during the next 12 months. We hope the special 2017 Stagecoach Culture Bus will create a feeling of pride for everyone in the City of Hull.”

The project comes after Stagecoach has invested £2.7million in a fleet of 15 new double decker buses for Hull. The state-of-the-art vehicles are running on the popular Simplibus network joining main residential areas of Hull with Paragon Interchange through the heart of the city centre, which is currently being transformed by major public realm works.

Exhibition Catalogues

Desk-top publishing of exhibition catalogues by Arabella Decker

Reason for creating catalogues: I have discovered that a catalogue is the proof that a show has taken place. Without printed and available documentation, people forget who and what was shown after the exhibit is over. In case of disaster (like fire or flood), the catalogue may be the only proof an official will accept about the artist’s level of professional achievement (think insurance). The fact that catalogues are held in many hands assures the survivability of the information.

Making a catalogue by hand: You will need: 1. Shiny or textured card stock @ $20. or more a ream (500 sheets). 2. Paper for printing the catalog is expensive because it should be heavy paper that does not bleed and does take ink well. Count your pages, then decide whether you will print on one side or two (two-sided requires heavier paper but half as many sheets). Multiply by the number of catalogues to be produced in order to determine your materials cost. 3. Photoshop and /or another program that can be used to create each and every page will cost $700. – $1500. 4. Ink is a surprise cost because you need a lot of color and/or black ink to make the images and print stand out on each page (at least $100. or more, depending on the number of catalogues to be printed). 5. Epson printers with archival inks are the best for the job @ $300. 6. Either a special punch and coil system or a special staple system will be needed to put the book together. Punch and Coil will run $300. A staple system for less than 50 pages will cost $20.

Intense work and editing is needed: 1. First all images must be taken (300 dpi recommended) 2. Statements must be written and edited 3. Pages designed 4. Pages printed 5. Pages collated
6. Pages and cover put together and bound

Pitfalls of an in-house created catalog: 1. Because it does not have an ISBN number, it has less archival value for researchers. 2. Artists often write pages of nonsense (“artspeak”) unrelated to the work shown. 3. Grammar, spelling, and sentence structure must be checked by an experienced editor. 4. People often want more catalogs than were ordered and printed.

A lot of work, but it is worth the effort to document your art and your exhibitions!

TIPS

About Artist’s Statements: Take the time, make the effort, to write an effective artist’s statement. The artist statement cannot be understated or underestimated. A clear, concise, well-written artist statement is essential. It can move the artist’s work from being just another pretty piece to a more scholarly level.

Other notes on catalogues: As a curator and having produced many catalogues, I would like to stress the importance of:
• good quality images of one’s artwork;
• making sure the information given for the work is accurate.

It’s not pollution that’s the problem.
It’s not waste that’s the problem.
It’s not climate change that’s the problem.
It’s not global warming that’s the problem.
It’s not polar ice caps melting that’s the problem.
It’s not deforestation that’s the problem.
These are symptoms of a bigger issue.
It’s the way we think, the way we live today.
If your sick, you go to a doctor. If there’s a problem you find a solution.
We only have one planet.
We all live on the same one.
We all have a common interest. This is our home and we are burning it down.
