THE WINNERS OF METROSCAPES 2016
Beginning in 2015, AIT and the Bi-State Development Marketing team began a program to create a more appealing environment at bus shelters throughout the MetroBus system.
With that simple challenge, MetroScapes was created, an annual competition that selects 10 images submitted by regional St. Louis artists. In keeping with AIT’s philosophy that artists should be appropriately compensated for their work, artists submit images of pre-existing work / images for this program. Artists whose works are selected for MetroScapes are paid for the limited reproduction rights for use of the image for one year in bus shelters and for reproduction of a limited run of posters offered for sale with proceeds going to the not-for-profit Arts in Transit, Inc.
A reception for the artists and public display of the posters will be held on Friday November 4th at Hoffman LaChance Contemporary from 6:00 to 10:00 pm.
