Thank you to those who participated. Part 1 of Engagement is now closed.
As part of the BRT MAX Purple line project, The City committed to an investment in public art along International Avenue.
Phase One of the public art involved displaying artworks by artists with a connection to International Avenue in the transit shelters along the MAX Purple line.
This is Phase Two of the public art. It will involve up to six opportunities for artists or artist teams with ties to the area to work along International Avenue. This will involve two types of engagement with the community. Part one will help us determine the best locations for site-specific art installations along International Avenue. Part Two engagement will happen with the artists so we can hear from community members on artistic themes.
Provide Your Input
While the artist selection process is underway, we want to know from you where you would like to see this art along International Avenue near the MAX Purple transit line.
A list of potential locations was created by community members who live and work in the International Avenue area. These locations were confirmed by The City to be feasible potential locations for new artworks.

Look at the ten locations in the list below and use the pictures and maps to help you. Tell us which locations you think are best (and why) for new art that enhances International Avenue.
Part One engagement will close on September 3, 2019 and we will look at all the responses. We will use this information to help us decide on the art locations.
Please come back to this page in the fall to see the final selected locations, and to participate in Part Two engagement.
Part Two engagement will begin once the artists are selected, and will focus on identifying artistic themes and concepts that resonate with the community.
