Valley Metro Light Rail is accepting submittals from established and emerging artists for eight public art opportunities along the planned Capitol Extension light rail alignment. National and local artists may apply.
The Capitol Extension (Capex) light rail project will run from downtown Phoenix to the Arizona state Capitol Building. The project will include a total of six rail platforms as well as two traction power substations.
Eight artists will be selected. Budgets range from $50,000 for the substations, for emerging artists; to $300,000 for the station platforms, for established artists. Artists will apply for both opportunities.
