Brief Description

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) invites arts organizations to submit qualifications for community programming and artwork design services for an original mosaic mural artwork at a site adjacent to the forthcoming Westwood/VA Hospital Station. The artwork design will honor a portion of a mural by artist and U.S. Navy veteran Peter Stewart that will be decommissioned during the construction of the new Metro station. This section of the original mural is painted on the off-ramp wall from westbound Wilshire Boulevard to Bonsall Avenue near the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) West Los Angeles Medical Center. Applicants must be legally authorized to work in the United States (per U.S. Department of Labor). Employees and contractors of Metro are not eligible.
