METRO ANNOUNCES STATION ART WORKSHOPS FOR ARTISTS

METRO ANNOUNCES STATION ART WORKSHOPS FOR ARTISTS
 
Metro Art will be holding local workshops for artists seeking Metro station art commissions.  Artists from all disciplines are encouraged to attend one of the workshops and apply to be qualified for upcoming project selection.  The Regional Connector Stations, one of which will be the Little Tokyo/Arts District station, are included in the new opportunities.  The workshops will outline the RFQ (Request for Qualification) on-line process and describe how artists will work with Metro and other vendors in order to produce the works.  The reproduction methods and scope of available opportunities  will be discussed.  Artists need not be currently familiar with these processes nor do they need public art experience in order to be qualified.  Qualified artists will be paid to submit specific proposals from which the final selections will be made.  The RFQ will become active the first week in February and remain open for 7 – 8 weeks; qualification is essential to receiving a commission.  Notice:  http://www.metro.net/about/art/artist-opportunities/
