Brief Description

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority {MARTA) invites artists to forward submissions for the commissioning of an innovative, dynamic public art installation at Grant Street, in the railroad underpass adjacent to the MARTA King Memorial Transit Station. MARTA is in the planning process for Transit Oriented Development {TOD) behind the King Memorial Transit Station. When the TOD is completed, the Grant Street Tunnel will be the sole pedestrian gateway to the King Memorial Station for TOD residents and business patrons. The work is envisioned to incorporate lighting and paint or other materials, and to affect both the walls and ceiling of the space by increasing overall light levels within the tunnel. When complete, the artwork will make the underpass accessible and inviting to pedestrians and give it the sense of being a unique and engaging environment. Successful projects will see the tunnel becoming a landmark for the community and even a destination.
