Brief Description

The Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture’s Public Art Program is requesting qualifications from professional artists to design perforated steel shade screens for multiple City of Phoenix bus shelters to increase shade coverage for transit users and promote a more walkable neighborhood, reducing the urban heat impact of exposed vacant lots and hard surfaces. In addition, the new bus shelters will promote a distinctive identity for communities and expand the Public Art Program’s award-winning series of artist-designed shade structures,

This is an excellent opportunity for 2D artists (painters, printmakers, muralists, graphic designers, weavers, fabric artists, etc.) with little to no public art experience to step outside their studio practice to work with the community to enhance bus shelters with original artwork and provide additional shade for commuters.
