The INTER|URBAN launched in 2016 with the creation of 18 murals and public art exhibitions between the airport and downtown along Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority’s Red Line.
The INTER|URBAN connects a broad, public audience to Anisfield-Wolf Book Award-winning literature that confronts race, racism, and cultural differences. It is an ongoing collaboration between the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA), LAND studio (LAND), the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards, and the Cleveland Foundation.
The INTER|URBAN is seeking artists to contribute new works to the program. 25 artists will be selected to create artwork to be displayed on Cleveland’s public transit rail cars, turning 25 train cars into moving galleries. Artworks will be printed on vinyl and installed on train car windows.
All artists are welcome to submit! If you have questions, please contact Joe Lanzilotta at firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line: INTER|URBAN RFP. For specifics about the project and details about this call, visit LAND studio Call for Artists. The team will review portfolios as they are added via this survey and selected artists will be notified before the end of May.
