  • Brief Description

    MARTA Artbound seeks artist qualifications to create a design for metal panels to be installed on the north and south pedestrian bridges at East Lake Transit Station. The selected artist will create a design that will then be fabricated, produced, and installed by a third party hired by MARTA. The project provides an artist fee of $90,000 for the creation of the artwork as well as consultation time with MARTA and project stakeholders on structural and safety aspects of realizing the work. A shortlist of 3 - 5 artists will be compensated to provide design proposals after facilitated community engagement. Eligible applicants will be professional artists and designers who show artistic merit demonstrated in a strong portfolio of past work. Artists must be over eighteen years of age and legal to work in the U.S.

    Please review the following links to view the project sites: https://tinyurl.com/mryy3b3h and https://tinyurl.com/28zjeuva || These links show the north and south pedestrian bridges. The selected design will impact all screened areas of the rebuilt bridges. In your statement, please provide some broad strokes on your envisioned approach to this project both through community involvement and the specific site.
