Metro Art launches Call to Artists

Metro Art invites visual artists to respond to our 2020 Call to Artists.

The online submittal must be completed by 11:59 p.m. (PST) on December 9, 2019.

We are hosting a series of free open house events to inform artists on how to be considered for art opportunities of varying scope and scale in the Metro transit system. Join us at one of five open house events happening all over L.A. County. Each session will cover the same information and provide an opportunity to meet Metro-commissioned artists.

Read below for open house details. All venues are accessible via transit, use your favorite transit app to get you there!
