Last Chance in Pelham: Deadline Approaching for Pelham Train Station Art Proposals

Last Chance is feature that reminds readers of important dates and deadlines that are coming up during the week.

The Metropolitan Transit Authority's "Arts for Transit" program is accepting applications from artists as part of the renovations that are being planned for the Pelham Train Station. All application must be postmarked by Friday, Sept. 14.

Editor's note. The deadline has been extended to Friday, Sept. 21.

The commissioned artist will create designs that will be reproduced in metal to be installed at the station’s platform railings and entrance canopy. An approved fabricator will be translating the selected artwork into metal, so an artist's experience with the material will not be taken into consideration during the selection process.

The budget for the design and fabrication of the artwork is estimated to be in the range of  $100,000 to $110,000. The budget includes an artist fee of  up to 20 percent of  the final project costs.  As part of  this fee, the selected artist will be required to submit a budget, produce completed designs, and oversee the fabrication and installation of the artwork.

There will be four finalists will be selectedand they will be given site specifications and a detailed overview of  the project to create a proposal for original artwork for the station. An honorarium of  $1000 will be paid for each proposal.  Only one artist will be commissioned.
