For the Airport station project, MARTA is looking for an artist who works primarily in paint or two-dimensional media. The selected artist will be responsible for the original artwork and coordinating with the mosaic team, but not for installing the the tile, according to the project summary.
Funded by MARTA, the project has a budget of $35,000 to cover the creation of the artwork.
The completed project will be displayed as riders exit the MARTA gates and head to the airport’s North and South terminals. Artwork that was completed for the site in 1988 will be put into storage, according to the release.
“The entire passenger area of the Station is undergoing a cosmetic upgrade, and this artwork is part of that initiative,” according to MARTA.
The project is slated to be completed in 2021.
Artists who are interested in the project should submit their applications by 5 p.m. on March 2. Details on application requirements can be found here.
