ATLANTA — MARTA is looking for artists to design a mural to be painted on concrete barriers at a new bus transit center in Clayton County.
As part of the first phase of planned transit improvements at the Clayton County Justice Center, MARTA will move a bus stop from Post Way to inside the center’s northwest parking lot. The concrete barriers will serve as a temporary wall between buses and bus shelters until a permanent structure can be built.
The transit hub will serve four bus routes with 800 daily riders.
Interested artists should submit 10 digital images of relevant previous work, labeled with title, dimensions and completion date.
Applications should include a statement of purpose describing the general approach and themes the artist plans to incorporate into the design. Artists also must submit a resume including community-centered work they have done, current contact information and two references.
Applications must be submitted in a single PDF document (not to exceed 10 megabytes) to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday at 5 p.m.
The selected artist will be notified by June 5 and must submit a final design for approval before the commission can be completed. Designs may not represent violence, be profane or graphic in nature or contain overt political or religious messaging.
The Artbound program will pay an artist’s fee of $5,000 to cover design and creation of the stencils that will be used to paint the mural.
