  • Artist on Design Team for Walnut Creek and Concord Stations, Lake Merritt Plaza/TOF, and Iron Horse Trail at Dublin/Pleasanton Station (4 total projects)

The call for Market Street Canopies and the artist pool are for artists residing in the US. The Artists on Design Team projects are for California artists, with Dublin/Pleasanton only open to artists in the 9 Bay Area Counties.

The opportunities at Lake Merritt Plaza/TOF, Concord and Walnut Creek Station seek an artist as design team member to participate in community engagement and identify opportunities for art to be incorporated into elements of the station that as part of the planned renovation, replacement or new construction. The project at Dublin/Pleasanton Station - Iron Horse Trail (IHT) is for an artist as design team member to participate in community engagement and identify opportunities to integrate art elements as part of an overall design program for bike/pedestrian access enhancement at the Dublin/Pleasanton station.

The Market Street Canopy project is seeking up to four artists to create bas relief designs to be incorporated to the underside of new fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) canopies that will protect the escalator/stair access points to four stations along Market Street in San Francisco (Embarcadero, Montgomery, Powell, and Civic Center). The canopies are already designed – this is an art enhancement project to that existing design. Artists submitting for the Market Street Canopy Project are not required to have experience as a design team member, and may submit for this project only and will not be placed in the pool for future design team opportunities.
