CAT Wellness Wall Art Mural Competition

Contest Overview:

Chatham Area Transit is putting an artistic spin to health and fitness, and we need YOUR help to do it.

One of our main goals at CAT is to provide a supportive environment for our hard-working employees and that includes a renovated wellness center.

The Wellness Center will be made up of gym equipment, a quiet corner, and future group fitness classes. But we want our CAT employees to have something incredible to look at while taking care of their well-being.

That’s where YOU come in.

CAT is looking for local artists to bring their artistic best to our WELLNESS WALL.  It’s a 7’5” ½ HIGH and 12’ Wide brick wall. The art will be seen by every CAT Employee who enters our wellness center.

The Importance of Physical Activity in the Workplace:

CAT knows how vital physical and mental health is in creating a great workplace.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, full-time employees spend most of their day at their jobs. The CDC also suggests healthy work environments improve the daily lives of Americans.
