Takoma Metro Public Art Project
Deadline: Friday, August 14, 2009 at 5:30 pm
The DC Creates! Public Art Program at the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH), in collaboration with the Washington Area Metropolitan Transit Authority, Art in Transit Program (WMATA) and the Takoma community, seek an artist or art team to design, create, and install artwork that will be located within the Takoma Metro underpass. The goal of this project is to create a vibrant and inviting gateway to the Takoma DC community. The colorful artwork will provide an “avenue” for residents, commuters and visitors to enjoy, admire and revitalize the community as well as express the unique story of historic Takoma.
For more information, email rachel.dickerson[at}dc.gov or call (202) 724-5613. To download the applications please go to www.dcarts.dc.gov (Public Art – Current Calls for Entries).
