Art in Transit: Call to Artists for The Purple Line

The deadline to submit applications for the Purple Line Art-In-Transit has been extended to Friday, November 28, 2014!

Ever wondered how cool and creative public artwork ends up in the Metro?  Are you an artist who thinks your artwork would catch the eye of the millions of busy commuters who use the Metro every day?  Well, this opportunity is for you!

The Maryland Transit Administration’s (MTA) General Engineering Consultant Team (GEC) seeks artists to create enhancements for the future Purple Line light rail project which will connect Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties in Maryland. Professional artists, preferably with public art experience are encouraged to apply.

Artists will be asked to work with the communities along the corridor to create artwork that highlights the cultural vitality of the region, and reflects the artistic, cultural and/or historical interests of the surrounding communities.
