Brief Description

The Macon Arts Alliance, in partnership with the Macon Transit Authority, is calling artists to submit proposals for a public bus shelter project made possible by the Downtown Challenge, a project of the Community Foundation of Central Georgia.

These projects should reflect the history of the location and the community they serve. These transformative projects can range from intersectional installations, decorative embellishments, to added elements that are structurally safe and sound. These proposals must be site specific, with artists choosing one of the locations listed below. Choose one location per proposal. Materials Budget: up to $3,500 per shelter depending on scope of project. Stipend: up to $5,000 per artist depending on scope of project.
