This playful project funded by Awesome Pittsburgh sees a regular bus shelter transformed into Pittsburgh's Smallest Jazz Club. Located in the city's cultural district, the immersive bus shelter experience is reinvigorated by a high-quality sound system that plays non-stop music by local non-profit Manchester Craftmen's Guild Jazz and features images of jazz musicians on the shelter walls.

While several highly successful commercial campaigns have popped up in South America that transform bus stops in a similar interactive fashion, this one is unique in that its goal is purely to brighten the day of the average commuter while highlighting a local non-profit. The feel-good project by Awesome Pittsburgh only required $1,000 of funding and is indicative of the future of outdoor ads.
