Hello Everyone...it's that time again, our fourth call for Washington Heights/Inwood artists to submit work for the Subway Elevator Poster Project. Please see the information below and go to "opportunities" on the home page for specific guidelines. This project is unique to our community and a wonderful opportunity for your work to be seen.
For those not in NYC, MTA stands for Metropolitan Transit Authority, our subway system. One of these days I will write the long, colorful history of this project. I am working on uploading images of the past winners, but for now, just want to get this info out to you. I hope that many of you in the specified area have already received a notice from me. Look forward to seeing your ideas. Good luck, rosa.
