Public Art Announces Takoma Project Semi-Finalists

Sunday, September 13, 2009

The DC Creates! Public Art Program in collaboration with the Washington Area Metropolitan Transit Authority, Art in Transit Program (WMATA) and the Takoma community, have selected five artists to create a site-specific proposal for the Takoma Metro Underpass.

The goal of the project is to create a vibrant and inviting gateway to the Takoma DC community. The colorful artwork will provide an “avenue” for residents, commuters and visitors to enjoy and admire.
Takoma Metro Public Art Project Semi-Finalists:

Sam Gilliam, DC
Cheryl Foster, DC
City Arts, Inc., DC
Mixed Up Mosaics, NY
Myklebust + Sears, WI
The semi-finalists' proposals will be on display at the Takoma Public Library for community feedback on Thursday, November 5, 2009 from 6 to 8 pm. The Takoma Public Library is located at: 416 Cedar Street, NW at 5th Street, NW. For questions, contact Deirdre Ehlen at or by phone at (202) 724-5613.
