Call For Artists For Sculptural Bus Shelters
Deadline to Apply: September 29, 2017, 5:00pm

The Hyattsville Community Development Corporation, on behalf of Landex Development, LLC, is accepting artist proposals for the design and fabrication of two (2) sculpturally-devised bus shelters for placement at two (2) revitalization sites on Rhode Island Avenue in the Prince George’s County Gateway Arts & Entertainment District.

The project is privately funded and intended to engage the imagination of Gateway Arts District stakeholders. The Bus Shelter placements will be provided outside of the newly constructed Studio 3807 and Artisan at 4100 as a means of simultaneously enhancing and promoting transit use. Both properties host a Capital Bike Share Station. The placements are adjacent to the Gateway Arts Center.

The first bus shelter will serve northbound commuters and is to be located at the northwest corner of the Studio 3807 site at 39th St, and calls for an iconic, contemporary, sculptural treatment for the bus shelter. The second placement calls for a similar structure for southbound commuters at Artisan at 4100, one block to the north. Installation for the first bus shelter is to be completed by March 26, 2018 to ensure delivery in advance of Studio 3807’s grand opening in Spring, 2018. The second bus shelter will be stored offsite once it is completed, to be installed December, 2018, ahead of Artisan at 4100’s grand opening in early Spring, 2019.
