Meet the 2019 MetroScapes Art Contest Winners

Join Metro Arts in Transit for the 2019 MetroScapes Art Exhibition and Reception at the .ZACK arts facility in Grand Center on Thursday, November 14. Art lovers and attendees will have the opportunity to meet the 10 artists selected for the 2019 MetroScapes program and see their winning creations. The event is free and open to the public.

“This year, we received the highest recorded participation since the MetroScapes program began back in 2015,” said Thad Duhigg, Arts in Transit Board Member. “The 10 winning submissions elevate the St. Louis region using mediums ranging from photography and computer-generated imagery to acrylic, spray and oil painting. St. Louis riders are in for a treat.”

The 10 winning pieces, selected by a panel of artists, will be reproduced as large-scale posters and put on display for a year at more than 100 MetroBus shelters in the St. Louis region.

Major funding for MetroScapes is generously provided by the Gateway Foundation.
