Bus shelters still need art

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Despite a call for artists put out last year, the Art in Public Places Board is still looking for art to put on the bus shelters that were constructed last fall.


The last call for artists produced only two proposals, however, the Board was only interested in one of them. Although, a deal between the Board and the artist was never finalized because the board only wanted to use portions of the Native American design that the artist had proposed.


“We want something regional, but also representative of Los Alamos. For example, the Native American artwork can be used in some part, but we weren’t sure how much relevance it had to Los Alamos, though it certainly had relevance to the region,” Community Services Director Stephani Johnson said.


She also mentioned that the board was interested in artwork that represented the mountains, wildlife and local landmarks around Los Alamos.


Johnson said she believed the low turnout for submitted proposals could be attributed to language contained in the call for artists that was released last year.
