Calling All Artists for Bus Rapid Transit ProjectREQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS AND PROPOSAL (RFQ/P) FOR ART SERVICES – BUS RAPID TRANSIT (BRT) PROJECT
The City of FRESNO (City) is accepting qualifications and proposals from artists/teams to provide ART SERVICES for the BRT PROJECT.

The route will follow Blackstone Avenue in the northern corridor, through downtown, and continue east along Ventura/Kings Canyon Road. Along the route, there will be 51 stations that allow passengers to access the buses. Each station will include a custom designed shelter, railings, passenger waiting amenities, and signage on raised platforms to facilitate easy and quick access to the buses.
The City is seeking to commission one to six artists/teams to design, fabricate, and possibly install functionally integrated public art for this project.
