The transportation department issued a "request for qualifications" this month and hopes to commission "multiple artists to design an integral art program for the GLX stations"—"GLX" being an abbreviation for Green Line Extension.
The initial stations needing artwork will be Lechmere Station, Washington Street Station and Union Square Station, but MassDOT will eventually select more artists for the other four stations planned as part of the extended light-rail line.
Interested artists should keep two dates in mind:
- Feb 6: A pre-qualification and informational session will be held at 5 p.m. at the GLX Project Office, 100 Summer st., Suite 250, Boston. MassDOT strongly encourages artists interested in submitting qualifications to attend this meeting.
- Feb. 20: Submissions must be submitted online by 12 p.m.
