Get Your Name On The Time Train

From 9am to 5pm, on Memorial Day, The Time Train public art project will be installing a 32 feet long painting along the street. Like a triptych, the painting is made up of three panels: The engine, a box car, a flat car and there will be a fourth car, a tanker, where all attendees are invited to draw on this art panel.

If you’re a startup, this might be a good guerilla marketing opportunity to paint your values, logo or tagline on the tanker, while participating in a celebration of a beautiful local neighborhood.
