The Arts at the JRTC

The Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center at LaVilla (JRTC) is an innovative and visionary multi-modal mobility hub in the heart of Downtown Jacksonville. It connects JTA transportation services with intercity bus service and future mobility options in one centralized location. By planting our flag in the heart of the historic LaVilla neighborhood, the JTA has created a space that will serve as a catalyst for its continued resurgence, and the connective tissue for our entire region. Throughout the JRTC, the JTA has commissioned a series of custom wall murals illustrating the history of regional transportation in Jacksonville that highlights African American achievement, along with a rotating collection of artwork from over 60 of Northeast Florida’s most innovative and talented artists.

This installation was done in concert with the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville, CoRK Arts District and the Jones Worley agency to create a sense of place and a living monument to the historic and often forgotten impact this neighborhood has had on Jacksonville and the nation, including the early civil rights movement, transportation and logistics, the influence of jazz music and African American culture.
