The deadline for submissions is Friday, September 13 for the 2019 MetroScapes, a public art program that showcases local art at Metro Transit locations.
The original work of 10 local artists will be selected and reproduced as large-scale posters that will be put on display at more than 100 MetroBus shelters and transit locations. Artwork selected for the program will also be reproduced as smaller, limited-edition posters available for purchase.
Each artist selected for MetroScapes will receive a copy of the limited-edition poster and $1,000 for the use of their original work in the program. An exhibition and reception for the winning artists will be held later this year.
There is no submission fee. Artists must reside within 50 miles of St. Louis to be eligible. Local artists may submit up to three images for consideration, and all submitted images must be high-resolution with a minimum 300 dpi. All entries must be submitted online through the “Opportunities” page of the Metro Arts in Transit website at artsintransit.org.
