About Citrus Connection
Art in Transit is an annual outreach campaign that brings Community Art and Public Transit together. The 2021 campaign returned as Citrus Connection held an art contest with the art programs with the middle and high schools of Polk County. Marina Barrientos, an 8th Grader from Davenport School of the Arts, was honored for being the winner of Citrus Connection's Art in Transit contest. Marina’s artwork, titled “Citrus Vacation,” is the winner and is now proudly displayed on the side of one of our buses for everyone to see.
Joining Marina to celebrate her feat is Citrus Connection Board Chairman George Lindsey, Polk County Commissioner Martha Santiago, Marina's mom Selene, Lakeland City Commissioner Phillip Walker and Polk County School Board member William Allen.
