About

The Capitol Extension project is a 1.4-mile western extension of the existing Valley Metro light rail transit (LRT) line from downtown Phoenix to the Arizona State Capitol. The Capitol Extension is scheduled to begin operations in 2028.

The Project shall include three, split platform stations (6 total platforms) along the route: 1) at 7th Avenue, on Washington and Jefferson streets, 2) at 13th Avenue on Washington and Jefferson streets. There are two new traction power substations (TPSS) that are also planned.

Communication, coordination and connection with the diverse communities along the alignment will be key to a successful art program for this extension. Artists awarded a contract for the Capitol Extension will coordinate with area residents and stakeholders, the Design Consultants, Valley Metro and City of Phoenix staff, and the Regional Rail Arts Committee (RRAC) to enhance the overall design of stops and transit elements along the Project.

Experienced public artists are invited to apply for the six station platform projects ($300,000). Emerging public artists are invited to apply for the two traction power substation projects ($50,000). Artists will apply for both projects in this call.
