The City put out the call yesterday for artists looking to create original, Hawaiian-themed artwork for Honolulu’s future rail transit system. The Rail Authority has set aside $5 million for 23 to 25 different pieces — sculptures and other weather-resistant artwork — to decorate the rail line’s 21 stations and its maintenance facility, which the city says will have an operations center open to the public. The application process is open to artists across the globe but city is particularly interested in those with a background or knowledge of Hawaii. Those interested in applying are encouraged to visit honolulu.gov/pur and click on “Professional Services” at the left side of the page.
