LA Metro Light Box Proposals

In 2005, the Los Angeles Metro Art Project issued a call to artists to propose sets of images for the Photographic Light Boxes Project. As Metro says, "The selected images will be reproduced as seven (7) 3’ x 4’ photographic transparencies mounted in a series of seven (7) low profile, back-lit boxes." Metro intends to place these boxes in Metro Rail Stations, the Wilshire/Normandie, Vermont/Beverly and Pershing Square Stations. According to Metro: the goals are "To create a temporary public art project which: * Is of superior artistic merit.  * Is engaging to transit riders. and * Activates the transit space." I have submitted the following proposals:
