Call to Artists- New Orleans Canal Street Transit Shelters

Application deadline August 11, 2008

In collaboration with the Regional Transit Authority and the City of New Orleans, New Orleans Downtown Development District will commission the transformation of 14 Streetcar Shelters along Canal Street into “art-centric” shelters through the application of original artwork. Artwork will be photographed and digitally printed onto laminate appliqués, which will be applied to the plexi-glass walls of the shelters. These commissions provide the opportunity for Louisiana artists to showcase their work during & after the international exhibit Prospect One International Biennial. Contemporary, innovative proposals are encouraged. Fourteen Commissions: $2,500 each, with a top jury pick award of $5000.
