Shortbus Studio News

Welcome to the Shortbus Studio

The mission of Shortbus Studio is to help bridge barriers between people and communities, and to teach us that in the end, we are more alike than we are different.

We encourage interactions between the Shortbus Studio artists and our local community in order to breakdown stereotypes and to promote acceptance.

Reclaiming the Short Bus -- Loud and Proud!

In the winter of 2008, a group of adults with developmental disabilities decided to create an intuitive art and outdoor adventure program in Burnsville.

Several of the artists wanted to name the studio Shortbus Studio because they said that the little yellow buses were a BIG part of their reality; they had to ride them everyday to and from school.

They wanted to help make the symbol of the short, yellow school bus COOL so that they could be proud of it... and it worked!

Because of the iconic logo, they have been able to educate the community -- especially young people -- on how we are more alike than we are different. The name has been a very positive thing for the artists at Shortbus Studio.
