MTA Arts & Design is looking for images of artists’ previous work to review in consideration for new subway murals along the N line in Brooklyn at 8 Avenue, 18 Avenue, 20 Avenue, Bay Parkway and 86 Street. An approved fabricator will translate the final artwork design into the identified medium, therefore an artist’s prior experience, or lack thereof, with these materials will not be taken into consideration when reviewing images.
The budget for design and fabrication of the artwork for each subway station will range from approximately $200,000 to $230,000, including an artist fee of up to 20% of the final art project cost. As part of this fee, the selected artist will be required to submit a budget, produce completed designs, select a fabricator and oversee the fabrication and installation of the artwork, with project management by MTA Arts & Design.
A selection panel comprised of arts and design professionals will select finalists to produce proposals. Finalists will be given site specifications and a detailed overview of the project to create a proposal for original artwork for the stations, for which they will receive an honorarium of $1,000. Following the selection panel’s review of proposals, one artist per station will be selected to receive the commission.
Eligibility is based upon artistic merit as evidenced in previous work, exhibition history, awards, honors, and publications, and demonstrated proficiency and technical knowledge of the medium(s) in which the artist regularly works. Artists must be available to work in New York during the required design and construction period (2016 to 2020).
Submit up to 20 images along with a short application form, a bio/CV, and brief artist statement. All artists interested in being considered for projects must apply through the online program at mtaarts.submittable.com.
Submissions must be complete by midnight on Friday, September 30, 2016.
