Brief Description

Artist will contract with BART for the design phase of the project, and with the hired general contractor for the fabrication phase. This budget is for design phase only.

The aesthetic and practical goals of the Project:

· Create artistic wayfinding enhancements within the station and/or at points of entry to the station.
· Attract new riders by creating a more personalized and welcoming station.
