Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) has engaged San José Public Art to contract with artists/ artist-led teams for the design, fabrication, delivery, and installation oversight of two (2) signature opportunities associated with a 2.4 mile light rail extension in East San José.
They are seeking two artists/artist teams (one for each site) with diverse skills in object making, material integration, and community outreach and engagement. A wide range of artistic approaches is acceptable for these opportunities, but ultimately the work must be appropriate for conditions of an exterior installation.
This opportunity is open to individual artists or artist-led teams working and living in the United States. One of the two commissions will be reserved for artists living and working in the Bay Area region.
