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.
