Metro’s Regional Travel Options, , in partnership with Centro Cultural and The Rosewood Initiative, seeks to hire two artists to create original artwork for neighborhood-based outreach campaigns that encourage walking, biking, sharing rides and taking transit. While Metro provides outreach campaigns to all residents in greater Portland, this effort in 2019 aims to uniquely address the community interests, travel needs and preferences, and values of people of color in two areas: Cornelius in Washington County and the Rockwood neighborhood in east Multnomah County.
The RTO program is calling on artists who represent these neighborhoods to apply for the opportunity to create original artwork for these outreach campaigns. The program will offer a $5,000 stipend to each artist, and the application deadline is Friday, February 28, 2019. Artists will collaborate with community members and partners and Metro staff to complete the artwork by May 30, 2019.
