Calling All Artist! Is your work so good that you believe it needs to be seen on a grander scale? If so, the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) is looking for you.

The MTA Arts & Design division is calling for local artist to submit their best designs to be featured along five Brooklyn N train stations. Of those submitted, five finalist will be chosen to have the opportunity to have their work re-created in durable materials like mosaic tiles or glass pieces  and installed in one of the following stations: 8th Avenue station in Sunset Park; 18th Avenue station, 20th Avenue station and Bay Parkway station in Bensonhurst or 86th Street station in Bay Ridge.

A panel made-up of arts and design professionals will then select finalists who will have to develop original art proposals. Each finalist will be given $1,000 and given site specifications and a detailed overview of the project to create a proposal for site-specific artwork for the stations.

The MTA has a budget of approximately $200,000 to $230,000 for design and installation for each station. Every artist will have to submit a proposed budget produce completed designs, select a fabricator and oversee the fabrication and installation of the artwork.

Artist interested in applying are to submit up to 20 images, complete a short application form, send in a bio/CV and a brief artist statement.
