Art Opportunity Alert: MBTA Seeks Public Artists

Massachusetts’ public transport network has released three calls for artists, all ending this month.

As part of its Integral Art program, the MBTA is seeking design proposals for two stations on the T and a new Commuter Rail station. Project details and deadlines for all are available here.

Per the Integral Art project guidelines, artists must use the materials of the transit network, “such as ceramic tile, bronze, steel, glass and concrete.”

And of course there’s a Think-Of-The-Children-style aesthetic constraint: “the product must enhance a positive and welcoming environment to the public.”

To help you dream up your project, here are some hideous renderings of the incoming Commuter Rail station it may be your job to beautify.
