Chattanooga contest seeking shuttle artwork

Public Art Chattanooga is seeking entries for Art in Motion, a new public-art initiative that will transform CARTA electric shuttles into mobile pieces of original art.

In collaboration with CARTA and the River City Co., PAC is accepting proposals for original, two-dimensional designs that will be wrapped on downtown shuttles. Five designs will be selected to be featured on five buses for two years beginning in the spring.

The competition is open to all visual and graphic artists and artist teams over the age of 18. Entrants must currently reside, work or attend a university within 50 miles of Chattanooga.

The selected artists/designers will receive a $2,000 honorarium for their designs.

Deadline for submissions is March 9 at 4 p.m.
