The WTS-Boston Public Art Committee has been working with MassDOT and the MBTA to commission a new public art piece in the Red Line Concourse at South Station. The piece focused on “Women In Movement” will celebrate the progress women have made in the transportation sector. Please read on for exciting updates on the artist selection process.

RFQ Released – Artists Wanted

The Request for Qualifications was released on June 3, 2014 on the Café website:  https://www.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=1910. Interested artists have until July 21, 2014 to submit applications. This initial call for entries is the first step in the artist section process. From the pool of applicants, three potential artists will be selected to submit renderings and designs of their proposed work. Based on those submissions a panel of judges will select the winning design to be installed in South Station.

Potential Art Locations Selected

Artists are able to choose one of three spaces they want to work with, two in the unpaid lobby and one in the paid lobby of the Red Line/Silver Line Concourse. The WTS Public Art Committee will be holding an information session with interested applicants on Tuesday, July 1, at HDR Engineering headquarters on Atlantic Avenue after which the artists will be invited to tour the three sites.
