Call for artists: Your Utica Station

Note: this call has closed. Please see our open call for artists.

Calling Buffalo-based visual artists, illustrators, and designers! El Museo is looking for you to be a part of our new project Your Utica Station.

Three artists will be selected to participate in a temporary exhibition in the NFTA Utica Metro Rail Station this fall, in ad space on the backs of the station’s three ticket vending machines.

At this stage, we are not looking for specific art pieces or designs; we just want to get a general sense of your work. If selected, we will work with you to produce or adapt your work for the space, and pay you an artist fee!

For more information about the project, see our press release.

For questions about or help with the application, contact Bryan Lee at or call 716.464.4692.
