SEPTA runs a much appreciated Art in Transit project. It won’t make our stations look like those in Moscow, but I do appreciate the artistic touch.
Now, SEPTA’s looking for artists to create art for its BSL stations at Spring Garden and Girard. You can download information in (pdf format) here:
Spring Garden: http://www.septa.org/inside/cfaSGweb09.pdf
Each project has a budget of $150k. The deadlines are coming up (SG: 8/1, Girard: 9/18).
Last year, I was really pulling for How Philly Moves to be selected for the 46th Street Station. It wasn’t. But perhaps HPM can be adapted for Spring Garden or Girard stations?
