Metro invites visual artists residing in the United States to submit qualifications for possible inclusion in a Prequalified Artist Pool (Pool). The Pool will be used to select artists for a range of upcoming opportunities throughout the expanding Los Angeles Metro system, including 14 new Metro Rail stations and a variety of transit enhancement projects. Project budgets are anticipated to range from $50,000 to $1,000,000 depending on the artwork opportunity. Prior public art experience is not a requirement. The Pool will be active for a three year period.

ELIGIBILITY: This call is open to emerging and established professional visual artists who are legally authorized to work in the United States (per U.S. Department of Labor). Please note that artists who have completed a permanent Metro Art commission may apply for the Pool, but are ineligible for new commissions for a 3 year period from the date of completing their last commission. Employees and contractors involved in constructing rail and bus lines for Metro are ineligible. Once on the Pool, artists must maintain these eligibility requirements in order to be considered for contracting opportunities. Submittal by artist teams is not encouraged.
