TriMet is currently seeking submissions for a Pride Month bus wrap campaign for June 2022. This call is for local artists (LGBTQ+ artists given priority) in Clackamas, Multnomah or Washington County for an original painting, mural or multi-media piece that would work as a 2D bus wrap.
For previous cultural celebration months, Trimet has featured mural installations from their own collection – see the current buses here. Trimet is open to any illustration that is bright in colors and evokes emotion when seen from afar. If you know of any artist that might be interested, please share this information below.
Artists should submit by Friday, April 29:
- 2 to 3 original works either in digital form (JPG, PNG, or PDF file), or digital photo
- Pieces must be in landscape format only
- Scalable up to 160 inches tall x 230 inches wide
- Fit within the theme of – Loves Moves Us
One submission will be chosen and the artist will be compensated $3,000 for their work, the piece will be displayed on one TriMet bus beginning in June of this year (2022) for up to a year and the artist will be featured on our 25th Anniversary Celebration of TriMet Public Art website (linked above). The artist could possibly be interviewed for a story by TriMet communications to be posted in all of our social media channels.
