MTA Arts & Design seeks images of artists’ previous work to review in consideration for a new site-specific permanent artwork, in conjunction with the Park Avenue Viaduct (PAV) Replacement project at East 116th Street in Harlem, NY.
The PAV Replacement Project focuses on the elevated steel structure that carries four tracks along Park Avenue between East 110th Street and the Harlem River Lift Bridge.
The MTA’s Construction & Development (MTA C&D) and Metro-North Railroad (MNR) team will replace segments of the PAV from East 115th Street to 123rd Street for Phase 1.
The new MTA A&D permanent artwork will be fabricated in durable materials, such as metal. An approved fabricator will be translating the final artwork designs into the identified media, however an artist’s prior experience with these materials and technical complexity will be preferred when reviewing images.
Submissions must be complete by 11:59 pm EST on Tuesday, January 31, 2023.
You can learn more about this opportunity, including selection criteria, funding available, and how to submit, on the MTA website here.
