Call for Art!
Providence Bus Shelter Art Panels & Seating
The City of Providence Department of Art, Culture + Tourism and the Department of Planning and Development, in partnership with the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA), invite artists and artist/fabricator teams to submit their qualifications and concepts for art panels and seating to be included in bus shelters along our city’s Broad and North Main Street transit corridors. This is a first of its kind project for the City of Providence and we enthusiastically await artist response.
A total of seventeen sites along these two bus routes will receive art installations as a result of this program and call for art. Past experience in fabrication and public art design is a requirement for this RFP. Artists without such a background are encouraged to team up with the appropriate 3D artists and fabricators.

All proposals must be received by July 8, 2013, 4 pm.

As part of our work with the City of Providence to revitalize the North Main Street corridor, we hope you’ll respond today to a very short and anonymous three-question survey to help us understand the distinct identity of North Main Street, Broad Street, and Elmwood Avenue. We hope to understand each street’s character well enough to define a distinct theme, or identity, for each. This survey is being hosted by the City’s Arts, Culture + Tourism department.
