Calling all designers!

Art in Motion is sponsoring a new design contest for an artistically designed bus shelter on Georgetown Street in Lexington, KY in partnership with  the Lexington-Fayette County Corridors Commission, Lextran, and LexArts.  Area neighborhood representatives, churches, and the owner of the proposed location are participating as well.

The deadline for submission of a conceptual design is April 30, 2014.

The shelter will serve both as a bus stop with seating and shelter for riders, and as public art that enriches the Georgetown Street corridor. The shelter will also be as environmentally sustainable as possible in design and construction.

Professional architects, engineers, sculptors and artists are eligible.  Students under the supervision of relevant professionals are also eligible. Design/build firms are encouraged to participate.
