Design Studio Relaunches Transportation Art Commissions
Five $1000 transportation art commissions available to local artists
As part of our partnership with GoBoston 2030, the Design Studio for Social Intervention is relaunching its mini transportation art commissions. There are five $1000 art commissions for Boston-area artists. The commissions include $500 for a transportation-inspired work of art (any medium...paint, poetry, dance, song, sculpture, food, etc.) and $500 to spend two days with your piece at the GoBoston 2030 Visioning Lab on May 8th and 9th. Our goal is to have art help engage and inspire thousands of Bostonians to imagine Boston's transportation future.
Applications due April 9th. Artwork must be completed and available by April 23rd. Artwork previously completed and used in other contexts is acceptable. Download PDF of application HERE.
“Go Boston 2030 is a City of Boston initiative to envision a bold transportation future for Boston for the next 5, 10 and 15 years. The plan will develop a far-reaching vision that proposes transformative policies and projects to improve transportation for the city’s residents, businesses and visitors. The two-year process will be driven by data and steered through an unprecedented and inclusive public engagement process.”
At the Design Studio we design and prototype alternative ways to approach and address complex social problems. We explore unusual solutions, ones that’s very existence help the system see new options for solving stubborn problems.
